With Week 1 of college football kicking off this past week, college quarterbacks and running backs have invaded the "Cross-Sport Power Rankings" for the very first time. So much so that the panel's top athlete from the college gridiron this week, Denard Robinson, landed all the way at No. 2. Had it not been for the dynamic performance of Carlos Gonzalez this past week, Robinson would have been crowned No. 1.

Other notable athletes on our list include two WNBA players from the Storm (buzzer-beater Sue Bird, and league MVP Lauren Jackson), three of tennis' most dominant performers from the U.S. Open thus far (Rafael Nadal, Roger Federer, Caroline Wozniacki), and the Jets cornerback with a brand new contract (Darrelle Revis).

Did the panel make the right decisions this week? See anyone who was placed way too high, unjustly low or whom we flat-out missed? Now is your chance to let us know below!
