Another exciting weekend has gone by, with a little shaking up in the top ten this time around. The Georgia Bulldogs bounced back by beating #6 South Carolina in Athens, 41-30. Out in Texas, Mack Brown may be looking for a new job (or retirement) soon following his team's embarassing 41-20 loss to BYU. Same for Lane Kiffin at USC. Though he is just 38, retirement from coaching might be his best option, as well. The Trojans scored just a single TD in a home 10-7 loss to Washington State.

 

Here are my top 25 teams following the games of week two:

 

1. Alabama (1-0) - An open week is a nice way to get ready for a trip to Texas A&M. Alabama's famed defense will try to stop Johnny Manziel and crew when the Tide travels to College Station in six days.

 

2. Oregon (2-0) - A 59-10 blowout of Virginia - 3,000 miles from home - was quite impressive. The Ducks were up 21-0 before Wahoo fans could get their wine bottles open.

 

3. Ohio State (2-0) - The Buckeye nation got a scare when QB Braxton Miller left with a sprained knee. The team expects him to play against Cal this weekend.

 

4. Stanford (1-0) - The Cardinal did not blow me away with ta 34-13 win over San Jose State, but I know this team is solid. The schedule sucks at first - two pasties and an open date - but in week four it gets rolling.

 

5. Clemson (2-0) - After games like this you take a huge sigh of relief that no injuries took place. QB Tajh Boyd accounted for four TDs in the Clemson 52-13 drubbing.

 

6. Louisville (2-0) - Teddy Bridgewater threw for four TDs and 397 yards in a 44-7 win over Eastern Kentucky. The senior will be in the Heisman talks all season despite UL not having a marquee game on their entire schedule.

 

7. LSU (2-0) - After two games with new OC Cam Cameron, LSU ranks #16 nationally in points scored with an average of 47 ppg. Kent State is up next before the SEC slate sets in.

 

8. Florida State (1-0) - FSU got the season rolling against Pitt Monday night and freshman Jameis Winston looked sharp. The Pittsburgh defense isn't exactly the Steel Curtain, but regardless, Winston is going to be a heck of a player.

 

9. Texas A&M (2-0)  - Everyone in the country knows that A&M welcomes in Alabama this weekend. This SEC West matchup has been circled by Tide players since the upset the Aggies pulled in Tuscaloosa a year ago.

 

10. Michigan (2-0)  - Coach Brady Hoke has the Wolverine nation on fire after a big win over "rival" Notre Dame last night. UM carries the bragging rights for this game off into the sunset...

 

11. Georgia (1-1)  

12. Oklahoma State (2-0)  

13. South Carolina (1-1)  

14. UCLA (1-0)  

15. Oklahoma (2-0)  

16. Northwestern (2-0) 

17. Nebraska (2-0) 

18. Arizona State (1-0) 

19. Miami (2-0) 

20. Wisconsin (2-0) 

21. Mississippi (2-0)  

22. Tennessee (2-0) 

23. Washington (1-0) 

24. Florida (1-1) 

25. Baylor (2-0)
