|Last week’s ballot|
Dropped Out: Southern Cal (#17), California (#19), Houston (#20).
Well, there it is — my final ballot for the regular season. I honestly had a tough time with my #2, since somehow Texas, Cincinnati, and TCU played similarly difficult schedules (especially when it came to ranked wins), and I really wasn’t impressed with the Longhorns on Saturday night. Unfortunately for those (like myself) hoping for some BCS-busting action, Cinci barely eked out victories over its two toughest opponents (WVU and Pitt) and TCU’s signature wins came against BYU and Utah — neither was enough to merit a jump over Texas.
As always, leave your thoughts in the comments — if there’s something that needs to be changed, I’ll have a final ballot in on Tuesday night.
