After the top two each team has its arguments for and against, it should sort itself out in the next few weeks.

USC moves up by default because all the teams ahead of them were pretty much terrible or unimpressive this past week. I was of the school that thought USC could lose anywhere from 1-3 games to close the season, now that number has shrunk to possibly 1. Oregon is awful on the road without their home cookin officiating and was completely dismissed from my top 25. Cal struggled against Washington, having to go to OT, and fell a few spots, but they are still IMO the best shot to knock the Trojans off. Notre Dame drops a couple notches due to their pathetic performance against UCLA which they should have lost and if UCLA can have success in the air with them there's no way that USC won't. UCLA was more impressive than expected but unless they play the game of their lives I don't see them beating USC either.

Clemson moves into the top 10 after the impressive performance at home against Georgia Tech. James Davis and C.J. Spiller are just insane. I think I know who my new team to use in NCAA Rushing attack is. Spiller had two great TD's, the first one which just showed how fast he is and the 2nd one showing the elusiveness as well as he used the R1, L1 double juke and just took it to the house. I will now watch every Clemson game on TV because of him.

Wisconsin and Rutgers continue to quietly move up the charts, probably the most disrespected one loss and undefeated teams in the country. If Ray Rice continues like this he deserves a trip to New York for the Heisman ceremony.

Memo to Chan Gailey: Get Calvin Johnson the ball!

Nebraska impressed me with their performance against Texas, I expected the Longhorns to win somewhat easily but that was not the case. Bill Callahan has got the Huskers turning the corner.

Let the Countdown Begin:

Wallpaper is from Michigan Against The World, they've got many more over there that are pretty dope, check it out.
