WBN NCAA Football Top 25: Three way tie for #3 spot in country


Five weeks in, the Alabama Crimson Tide and the Oregon Ducks are the unanimous #1 and #2 team in the country in the latest edition of the WBN Top 25.  But our voters could find no clear consensus for the #3 team as LSU, FSU, and Georgia forged a three way tie.  Texas was the big mover this week, moving from #12 to #9, while Stanford plummeted ten spots to #18.  Three new teams entered the Top 25 this week as Washington, Boise State, and Northwestern made their appearance.  This is the second time this season Boise State has entered the Top 25.  Tennessee, Baylor, and Michigan State dropped out to make room for the three new teams.  Here is the complete WBN Top 25.
