My Harris Poll Vote – From The Bird’s Nest

This is my third year in the voting in the Harris Poll and already, as usual, it’s pretty tough to discern the final ten teams. I have three newcomers to my poll: Missouri (18), Auburn (22) and UCF (25). The Tigers (the ones from Columbia) were very impressive in their road win over Georgia. The Tigers (from Alabama) haven’t played the toughest schedule, but that win over Ole Miss and a road loss at LSU (The Tigers from Baton Rouge) aren’t too shabby. The Knights’ only loss was to South Carolina…and that was a close game. Their win over Penn State looks even better after the Nittany Lions’ defeat of Michigan Saturday. All three newcomers will have tough tests next weekend. UCF goes to Louisville for a Friday night game, Auburn has to travel to College Station, and Mizzou gets Florida in Columbia. Speaking of Michigan, you won’t find them in my poll this week. Northwestern and Washington have also disappeared.

Here’s my vote for this week.

1. Alabama
2. Oregon
3. Clemson
4. Ohio State
5. Florida State
6. Louisville
7. LSU
8. Stanford
9. Baylor
10. UCLA
11. Miami (FL)
12. Texas A&M
13. South Carolina
14. Georgia
15. Fresno State
16. Texas Tech
17. Oklahoma
18. Missouri
19. Virginia Tech
20. Northern Illinois
21. Oklahoma State
22. Auburn
23. Nebraska
24. Florida
25. UCF
