Full disclosure: My final AP football ballot



Okay, nitpickers and naysayers, here's your final opportunity to question my competence.

Bowl performance, obviously, was a strong criterion in my final rankings. In many cases, so was head-to-head competition (hence South Carolina above Missouri, Notre Dame ahead of USC, etc.).

And for those 'Nole fans who spent half the season harassing me for keeping Oregon at No. 2 ahead of FSU: Funny how these things always seem to work themselves out.

1. FSU
2. Auburn
3. Michigan State
4. Oklahoma
5. South Carolina
6. Missouri
7. Alabama
8. Clemson
9. UCF
10. Ohio State
11. Stanford
12. Oregon
13. Oklahoma State
14. Baylor
15. UCLA
16. LSU
17. Louisville
18. Notre Dame
19. USC
20. Texas A&M
21. Nebraska
22. Wisconsin
23. Duke
24. Arizona State
25. Iowa
