Utah Still #1; Baylor 3rd, TCU 5th, OSU 9th, OU 10th, Texas Tech 25th.

Utah continues to get the #1 position in my personal Top 25 list of college football teams.  The Utes beat a good Arizona State team at home Saturday night to hold the top spot.  LSU moved into 2nd with their win over previously unbeaten Florida with Baylor a strong third after a dismantling of conference foe West Virginia Clemson and TCU round out the top 5 with Big Ten powerhouses Ohio State and Michigan State close in 6th and 7th.  (yes, I am top heavy toward the Big 12…….they are deserving currently)
