For the first time since we started keeping track of our own power rankings at the start of October, we have a chance in the top two. Alabama's strangle hold on first place is also starting to crack. With Alabama and Oregon both off this past weekend, Florida State took advantage of their win against Miami and has shaken things up a little bit in our weekly power rankings. But this race is still too close to call.
1. Alabama (85 points, 4 first-place votes)

Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston, who has admitted that he has trouble with his vision, has thrown for 24 touchdowns and just six interceptions this season wearing no contacts (he prefers not to in games). He’s also completed over 70% of his passes. Imagine what he’d be able to do if he could actually see downfield.
Winston apparently got fitted for some new Ortho-K contact...

63-0. 51-14. 41-14. A top 25, a top 5 and a top 10 team faced Florida State this year. Those were, respectively, the scores of the game for each team, with FSU showing absolute dominance over the competition. Noticeably absent is the 49-17 shellacking FSU gave to NC State, with 35 of those 49 points […]The post Florida State: Sustained Excellence Brings BCS Championships appeared...

Last week, Florida State made yet another statement to the rest of the college football world when the Seminoles dismantled Miami 41-14 in Tallahassee.
