Not a lot of surprises here. Michigan State and Stanford is a worthy 100th Rose Bowl matchup of top-five teams. If Alabama loses to Oklahoma and Michigan State wins, the Spartans could potentially finish the season No. 2. ... Ohio State drops five spots for both of us after the 10-point loss in the Big Ten championship game. That's the problem with a subpar schedule; once you lose, there's not much else on the résumé. ... Wisconsin is still hanging around the top 20 and gets a top-10 team (South Carolina) in its bowl. Time for the Badgers to prove the Penn State loss was a fluke. ... Northern Illinois drops out for both of us (see: subpar schedule), while the team that beat the Huskies in the MAC title game jumps in. Bowling Green has had a very nice season, even if it did lose by 32 points to Indiana in September. ... Iowa doesn't crack either of our Top 25s, but it was close for me. The Hawkeyes are my No. 26 this week.

What does your final, pre-bowl Top 25 look like?
