THE 11 BEST 11s OF WEEK FIVE
1. Southern California Trojans Rank Last Week– #1
With only a weak Pac-10 schedule standing in their way, the Men of Troy seem to be headed for the BCS Title Game in Miami. Can they keep their edge until then?

The question for Bob Stoops' outfit is simple: Can they survive the brutal Big 12 schedule in order to remain in the top two teams until selection of the BCS Title Game arrives?

Only the most powerful of teams could have turned Tennessee into a kindergarten outfit in Neyland Stadium. The Gators have staked their claim as the best team in the country.
4. Georgia Bulldogs Rank Last Week– #5
Like the Titanic at sea, is this powerful juggernaut going to survive incredible dangers which await along the journey? A rugged schedule may be a blessing, and not a curse.

Apparently not up for the struggle with Turner Gill's Buffalo unit this past weekend, the Tigers will have to improve the defense before taking on the Big 12.
6. Texas Tech Red Raiders Rank Last Week– #7
Possess the weapons, speed, and depth to take over the entire country if their brilliant coach has the time to prepare for a rugged slate of opponents. If he has the time.....

Now, having found their quarterback, this incredible group of athletes will make its run to repeat as National Champions. Only a King Destroyer could have beaten Auburn at home.
