AP college football vote, Week Five
The poll should be out in a few minutes, and there should be plenty of movement with several upsets and some underwhelming performances with highly ranked teams just barely getting the W. Here’s how I voted.
6. Ohio State
10. Texas A&M
13. Michigan State
16. Florida State
17. Oklahoma State
19. Boise State
22. Notre Dame
I pretty much agree with our rankings, except I would have Ohio St. behind Alabama. While they beat Indiana, they did not look good. It was a one-man show. Ezekial Elliott really bailed out Ohio St. from a loss.
I might put UCLA in there instead of Temple– but the list shows how some non-traditional powers have moved up. Very proud of Navy and Niumatalolo and Jasper– two ex-UH quarterbacks who have turned Navy into a powerhouse even with the limitations of one of our service academies. Navy has consistently played well season after season. One of the great things Paul Johnson did was take these two (and another I cannot recall) former Hawaii players and got them started on great careers in coaching. Kenny gets a multi-million salary these days.
Yeah, Kenny is supposedly the highest paid federal employee. But Navy is not yet in the Top 25. Close. This week they come in at #31. And I can’t believe Ohio St remains at No. 1. Nothing against them, but they struggled mightily against Indiana. Baylor received 10 first-place votes, coming in 3rd behind TCU.
