Official B/R Writers' Poll: Week Five

Virginia Tech looks to be the real deal after whomping Miami, and the B/R writers acknowledge that by placing the Hokies fourth overall, compared to sixth in the AP.

How else does the B/R poll compare to College Football's most revered (and hated) rankings system?

Iowa is given slightly less respect by the B/R writers, who put the Hawkeyes three spots lower than their AP ranking. They raised Georgia Tech to No. 22, three more than their AP No. 25 ranking.

Other than that, it looks like most writers either agree with the poll, or are copying from it. That, or most B/R writers are natural SEC homers, as five out of the top 25 are from the SEC. The next closest conference is the Big 12, with three.

  1. Florida (8) 290
  2. Texas (2) 286
  3. Alabama (2) 279
