College Football Top 10: 2009 Week 9

Quarterback Ricky Stanzi has the Hawkeyes knocking on the BCS door in the latest SportsofBoston poll.

It took a sketchy win over a conference doormat, but Iowa’s victory over Indiana has vaulted them up to fourth in the last SportsofBoston poll. They passed BCS busters Boise State, TCU, and USC who dropped from consideration entirely with their second loss of the season. Florida remains unanimous number one with Alabama and Texas behind them. Presuming Florida and Alabama remain undefeated, they will play in the SEC title game, leaving one spot in the BCS title game open. It is Texas’ for the taking unless out pollsters see something else we really like.

Pollsters are SoB’s Brian, Erikk, KC, Matt, Mike, and MikeBBonner and comments were gathered with the votes. The ballots are available.

Week: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | Final
