Michigan – What looked like a soft schedule coming into the season has turned into a bit of a gauntlet. The Wolverines figured out how to beat uptempo Colorado and plodding Wisconsin. Jim Harbaugh has hidden Wilton Speight and relied on actual playmakers. We won’t know what kind of road team this is until Oct. 29. Until then, the confidence will grow.

Louisville/Wisconsin – Would have been an interesting debate surrounding the No. 1 spot had both teams won. Wisconsin’s victory over Michigan State is growing less impressive by the minute.

25. Boise State

Washington – The Stanford win was more impressive than anything I’ve seen from Michigan or Houston thus far.

Louisville – Not knocking them too far for a narrow loss at Clemson. I think they are better than undefeated Texas A&M and Tennessee teams on a neutral field.

Western Michigan – Row the boat. Western Michigan beat two Big Ten teams on the road. The Broncos crushed a Central Michigan team that beat Oklahoma State. They are 5-0 and have faced a tougher schedule than a number of Power 5 teams so far.
