Pancirco CFB Top 25: Week 12

635510852807322343-USP-NCAA-FOOTBALL-OHIO-STATE-AT-MICHIGAN-STATE-68603070I’ve finally followed suit with the rest of the nation and moved Mississippi State up to No. 1. They’ve played well enough to earn it, and while I still don’t view them to be as talented as Florida State, you can’t take away their three wins over top 25 teams, which I value more than FSU’s. Wins over Texas A&M and LSU look much stronger today than a week ago, while FSU’s win over Notre Dame looks weaker. The two teams I still haven’t figured out are Baylor and Nebraska. By season’s end I can see them being in dramatically different slots than where they are currently. Part of me wants to place them higher than their respective Nos. 7 and 14, but they’ll have opportunities to earn it on the field. The complete ranking is as follows.

  1. Mississippi State (8-0)
  2. Florida State (9-0)
  3. Oregon (9-1)
  4. TCU (9-1)
  5. Arizona State (8-1)
  6. Alabama (8-1)
  7. Baylor (8-1)
  8. Ohio State (8-1)
  9. Auburn (7-2)
  10. UCLA (8-2)
  11. Ole Miss (8-2)
  12. Arizona (7-2)
  13. Michigan State (7-2)
  14. Nebraska (8-1)
  15. Notre Dame (7-2)
  16. Kansas State (7-2)
  17. LSU (7-3)
  18. Georgia (7-2)
  19. Utah (6-3)
  20. Duke (8-1)
  21. Oklahoma (6-3)
  22. Texas A&M (7-3)
  23. Clemson (7-2)
  24. USC (6-3)
  25. Louisville (7-3)
