Alabama looks a little bit more vulnerable than I think most of us expected, but the Crimson Tide are still ESPN.com's favorite through four weeks, coming in at No. 1 in our power rankings. (And in mine, too)
My colleagues and I also see eye-to-eye in the early-season Heisman Trophy race, with Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota holding the top spot on my ballot and on ESPN.com's Heisman Watch.
Notre Dame, meanwhile, moved up one spot to No. 22 in our power rankings. This week's opponent, Oklahoma, jumped a spot to No. 15. Colleagues Mark Schlabach and Brad Edwards both have the Irish slated for the New Era Pinstripe Bowl against Rutgers.
Here is how I voted in this week's power rankings and in Heisman Watch. (Of note: I do not have a vote in the Associated Press poll nor a vote for the Heisman Trophy.)
5. Ohio State
6. Florida State
9. Texas A&M
11. Oklahoma State
12. South Carolina
16. Ole Miss
21. Notre Dame
22. Georgia Tech
23. Fresno State
