Full disclosure: My AP ballot (Oct. 27)



Unlike last weekend's seismic overhaul, my latest ballot remains relatively stable, with the top six teams intact.

The most significant shake-ups: Missouri (No. 9 to 14) and Texas Tech (seventh to 15th) exiting the top 10 after losses to quality opponents. Say what you will about Miami at No. 9, but the 'Canes remain immune to an upset bug that has stricken so many others.

You'll notice Louisville stays put at No. 19. Before balking, I pondered long and hard about nudging the Cardinals up for their resilience Saturday, when USF tried to wear down their offense by keeping it on the field 41 minutes.
