    It's actually 7 teams, Baylor is not included on that list. Either way it will be a brutal schedule. It's a little disappointed not one BIG 12 team made the top 10.

    5-25 is going to look a lot different a couple weeks into the season. Btw, who the **** gave A&M a vote?? I hope they go 4-8.

    Tulsa receiving votes? Not sure why people aren't expecting a big drop off for them. They lose almost their entire starting defense, as well as there starting qb and I believe 3 all conference o-linemen. Sure they have some good running backs, but their d was what made them a good team last year.

    I think Louisville should be higher. They darn near return everyone.

    Oklahoma and Florida State too low - Ohio State too high.

    Oops. I had it in my head he was a senior. Guess that does help quite a bit, but still feel everything they lose on d is going to cause them big problems.

    I don't see how the Big XII fails to have a top ten team by the end of the season unless Texas/Oklahoma/OSU all go 1-1 against each other and no other team rises up. That TCU-LSU game will be huge for overall rankings in the conference.

    Bama plays a whopping two ranked teams all season (LSU and A&M). There is little chance they have more than one loss so will be a BCS team for sure.

    Ohio State has to play a few more ranked teams but nobody that is elite.

    Louisville doesn't play anybody at all.

    So does an undefeated Louisville get into the title game if Alabama or Ohio State get one loss early in the season?

    I don't know about all of you, but I sure cant wait to see Alabama man handle Ohio State in the National Championship game. Just look at OSUs schedule, it is complete trash. Iowa State could probably go 8-4 with that schedule. I cannot wait for the playoff to get here.

    After thinking on it a bit I think an undefeated Oregon/Stanford would jump an undefeated Ohio State in the last set of polls.

    I agree but as we have seen the last few years they always seem to lose one game.
