College Football Top 10: 2009 Week 10

Diron Dickerson and Pittsburgh can be ignored no longer, though the end of their schedule is not easy.

A big week of shake-ups saw two teams fall from the poll. Iowa’s nailbiting run kept them in the ranks of the undefeated for nine weeks, but the injuries and inability to put teams away caught up to them and they dropped from fourth to out. Oregon’s loss also dropped them, though more modestly, from the eighth spot. Pittsburgh makes its poll debut and Ohio State and USC rejoin the fray. Florida remained our unanimous number one with Alabama and Texas in the top three.

Pollsters are SoB’s KC, 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
