My Top 25, Heisman Watch votes

Two weeks down, and just a bit more clarity has surfaced in determining the race for the final BCS title, and for the Heisman Trophy as well.

... But not much.

Alabama remains on top of ESPN.com's power rankings, with Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd standing as our current Heisman Trophy frontrunner. Notre Dame, meanwhile, checks in at No. 21 in the power rankings.

In their bowl projections, Mark Schlabach has the Irish slated for the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl against Boise State, while Brad Edwards picks them to go to the New Era Pinstripe Bowl and face Rutgers.

Here is how I voted in this week's power rankings and Heisman Watch. (Of note: I do not have a vote in the Associated Press poll or a vote for the Heisman Trophy.)
