Week 2 sorted out a few things as far as the rankings go, as the Pac-12 looks to be the nation's best conference and the Big Ten again wilted in the spotlight.

Oregon is hot on the heels of Florida State for the top spot in our poll, but it's hard to move the Seminoles down as they are on an 18-game roll.

The Ducks' win over Michigan State was the highlight of the weekend, but the Spartans at least showed up and led in the third quarter before the Ducks went on one of their patented blitzes. That's more than can be said for Michigan and Ohio State.

The Hokies join the poll this week, as does BYU, which is led by star quarterback Taysom Hill.

23. BYU (2-0) – QB Taysom Hill has done it all so far for the Cougars and has them thinking about being a playoff spoiler. Hill totaled five touchdowns and in a season-opening 35-10 win at Connecticut before running for three scores in the rout of the Longhorns.

22. Clemson (1-1) – Coach Dabo Swinney ran it up against South Carolina State after being dominated by Georgia in the second half of the season opener against Georgia. Hope this one feels good Dabo, gonna get a lot tougher in the next one against the Seminoles.
