10. Georgia: Georgia bounced back brilliantly from its tough Week 1 loss to Clemson, holding off South Carolina to stay near the top of the SEC East.
9. Louisville: Teddy Bridgewater and the gang have cruised in their first two performances and have a chance to make a statement against an SEC foe when they head to Kentucky this week.
8. Florida State: Florida State took the week off after Jameis Winston’s dazzling prime-time debut on Labor Day. The Noles host Nevada on Saturday.
7. Texas A&M: Johnny Manziel looked just as good as ever against Sam Houston State. His Aggies host Alabama this week with all eyes squarely on College Station.
6. LSU: The Tigers had to put in some work to pass TCU in the season’s first week, but they left no doubt in their home opener, walloping UAB.
5. Stanford: Stanford finally got to play after having to wait through a Week 1 bye. The Cardinal barreled through San Jose State 34-13.
4. Ohio State: Ohio State has scored 82 points in its first two contests, but the nonconference slate gets a bit more interesting with a trip to Cal in Week 3.
3. Clemson: After a thrilling victory over Georgia in Week 1, Clemson had an easier time taking care of MEAC foe South Carolina State.
2. Oregon: Another game, another 50-plus points for Oregon. The Ducks took a cross-country trip to meet Virginia, but they didn’t miss a beat.
1. Alabama: Alabama took Week 2 off and had an extra week to prepare for the one team that kept it from an undefeated record last season, Texas A&M.
