The top seven remained the same from Week 2 to Week 3, with Alabama and Ohio State again sitting at the top of the poll. Alabama appears to be gaining a larger lead in its first-place spot, as 32 of the possible 42 first-place votes went to the Crimson Tide. Ohio State, Boise State, Oregon, and Oklahoma also received first-place votes.
Oklahoma State and Nevada were the new teams in the poll this week, and they moved in at #24 and #25, respectively. 2-1 California and 1-1 Pittsburgh were both dropped from the poll.
There are three official pollster applications for this week in the Applications forum. If you haven’t already, please go vote on the applications.
