AP college football ballot, after Week 5

For about five seconds on Saturday, I thought about putting Georgia at No. 1. Then I remembered what Oklahoma did to Ohio State, and saw Clemson and Alabama play in the late games. This week’s “OK, I was wrong:” Yes, Washington State took advantage of an overrated USC,and at home, but we’re now at a point where 5-0 with a win against a very talented but flawed team means quite a bit. This week’s “Maybe I am on to something:” UCF. Memphis is pretty good, and the Knights clobbered them. What happens first, Scott Frost to Nebraska or Colorado State’s Mike Bobo to somewhere like Tennessee?

For the complete poll, go here.

    Looks like McKenzie Milton is the smart one to play for UCF that is now ranked No. 22. While his numbers are not spectacular, HC Scott Frost has the team clicking as a well-oiled machine.
