My 2011 College Football Top 25

Updated on September 27, 2011

College Football Power Rankings

College football is America's greatest sport in my opinion but the ranking system on how the teams are ranked can be very bias and political. For instance, why was Oklahoma the preseason No. 1 team coming into the season when a SEC team has won the national title the past five seasons and a different SEC team at that. Another example why polls can be bias is take a look at last year's Florida team which started out the season 4-0 and No. 7 in the country before they got blasted by Alabama in Tuscaloosa last year 31-6. Florida was clearly not the seventh best team in the country although they had won there first four games of the year. Let's go back to the 2004 season where Auburn finished undefeated and won the SEC title but didn't play in the bcs title tgame and was not awarded a share of the national title even though they won there bowl game against Virginia Tech. That season the Tigers started out at No. 17 unlike USC and Oklahoma who #1 and #2 preseason. I know that you must have a preseason poll just for ths sake of it and the fans as well but about four weeks of football it needs to be a realistic poll. So after watching games for the first four weeks of college football and seeing who certain teams beat and who they have played here is my top 25 rankings of college football teams going into week 5.
