Here is our week 4 preliminary BlogPoll ballot.
Big movers this week include Stanford (up 9) and USC (down 18). Michigan State, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin, BYU and Tennessee are replaced by Notre Dame, Georgia Tech, Arizona, Nebraska and Oklahoma State.
By conference: Big 12 (6), SEC (5), PAC-12 (5) Big Ten (4), ACC (3), Big East (1), Independent (1).
Teams encouraging the most disagreement between ballots include TCU (6.36), Arizona (6.36), Oklahoma State (3.54), Louisville (3.54) and Notre Dame (3.54). Jeff and I both agree with 1-2 on the ballot, and that's about it.
Maybe next week: Michigan State, Iowa State, Virginia Tech, Ohio, Boise State.
Final ballot is due Wednesday morning. Thoughts / input welcome.
