College Football Fanatic's Top 25 (Week Two)

College Football FanaticCorrespondent ISeptember 7, 2008

25. Clemson

After absolutely getting embarrassed by Alabama last week, 34-10, they came back and easily got past The Citadel, 45-17.

24. California

Yesterday, they just flat out killed Washington State, 66-3. After something like that, I had to put them in my Top 25.

23. West Virginia

That loss yesterday was a little bit more than embarrassing. West Virginia is a team that normally gets 30 or more points a game. Yesterday, they scored three points on East Carolina. Three. That's pathetic. If they were playing Georgia or USC or someone like that, then I could see that happening, maybe. But ECU? No.

22. Utah

They opened up the year with a good win over Michigan and solidly beat UNLV 42-21 yesterday.

21. Fresno State

Fresno had the week off and will play Wisconsin at home next Saturday.

20. South Florida

USF escaped yesterday with a 31-24 OT win over Central Florida.

19. Oregon

The Ducks set a school record yesterday with 688 offensive yards in a 66-24 win over Utah State.

18. Wake Forest

Wake Forest, the best team in the ACC in my opinion, barely escaped with a 30-28 win over Ole Miss.

17. Brigham Young

BYU slipped past upset-minded Washington 28-27 thanks to a controversial and very questionable excessive celebration penalty and a blocked PAT.

16. East Carolina

ECU, you're officially on the map. They dominated #8 West Virginia 24-3 and beat #17 Virginia Tech 27-22 in the opener. Their last three games have all been against Top 25 teams (#24 Boise State in the Hawaii Bowl last year) and they have won them all.

15. Penn State

Penn State proved that they will contend for the Big Ten title this year with a 45-14 rout of Oregon State.

14. Arizona State

ASU handled Stanford 41-17 yesterday to move to 2-0.

13. Kansas

The team with the fattest coach in America shut out Louisiana Tech 29-0.

12. Alabama

Alabama struggled at times against Tulane but still won 20-6.

11. Wisconsin

Wisconsin had troubles early against Marshall but ended up blowing them out 51-14.

10. Texas Tech

The most exciting team in football had trouble against Nevada but pulled away late for a 35-19 win.

9. Texas

Texas easily handled UTEP for a 42-13 win.

8. LSU

The Tigers were scheduled to play Troy but the game has been postponed to November 15th because of damage from Hurricane Gustav.

7. Auburn

Auburn got around the pesky Southern Miss team 27-13 Saturday.

6. Missouri

Missouri smacked around SE Missouri State, winning 52-3.

5. Florida

Florida had troubles for the first three quarters but pulled away late for a 26-3 win over Miami (FL).

4. Ohio State

Ohio State just plain sucked against Ohio on Saturday, but somehow avoided an upset, winning 26-14.

3. Oklahoma

Perhaps one of the best Oklahoma offenses ever helped destroy Cincinnati 52-26.

2. USC

USC had an off week and will play #5 Ohio State next week in one of the biggest games of the last 15 years.

1. Georgia

Georgia routed the Central Michigan Chippewas 56-17, doing a lot better than expected, and playing the best football out of the top five teams, which is why they're #1 this week.
