Top 25 predictions!

Make your top 25 predictions.

Note the top 25 teams who lost and their rankings:

#3 USC
#14 Georgia Tech
#18 Utah
#19 Nebraska

It looks like we can realistically move up 3-5 spots, but there are many more football games to be played today. USC will be ahead of us for sure, but could mean a huge jump for Washington.

I'm not sure we jump Nebraska. That game was amazing and came down to the last second with Taylor making a great pair of passes on that last drive. We definitely don't jump GT or USC. We played a really crappy team this week. That shouldn't have us jumping too many people.

Agreed. Nebraska was playing VT and came down to the final ticks. Hard to fault Huskers much there. I think we are behind them in the rankings still.

As for the top 25 movement, EMU is 0-3... not sure M beating EMU will sway voters across the country. Howeva, in general, after last year, I'm just happy to see us at 3-0.

Do u guys think SC falls below OSU? It's not like this loss was all that unexpected. and CNNSI both had features during the week predicting UW upsetting USC.

I must have confused what you were saying then. I thought you said we would be #18. I think we jump Utah. We have a shot at jumping Georgia, too. They're actually the underdog against Arkansas right now, and their down 7 (way early) as I type this. You've also got the hope that Cincy falls meteorically, but that game is close, too.

It'll be interesting what pollsters do with Houston. While they haven't done anything to deserve being dropped, I could see quite a few pollsters thinking they overreacted with placing Houston so high. Maybe not.

Other than that, I can't see us jumping anyone else. We weren't on ESPN/ABC where most of the AP voters would see us. We played a weak opponent. That doesn't really make it likely that we move up too far.

I think 21-23 would be best case, but that's using logic, which pollsters don't always use.
