Top 25 Team Rankings of the Harris Interactive College Football Poll

NEW YORK, Oct. 17 /PRNewswire/ — Today’s Harris Interactive
Football Poll(SM) shows the Top 25
results compiled from rankings submitted by the Harris Interactive
panel of former coaches, players and administrators, and current
and former members of the media. Oregon took over the number one
ranking from Ohio State after the Buckeyes’ loss to Wisconsin,
while Boise State and TCU moved into spots two and three
respectively. Oklahoma and Auburn round out the top five, with
Nebraska moving out of the top five after its loss to Texas.



The 2010 Harris Interactive
Football Poll is comprised of former
players, coaches, administrators and current and former members of
the media who have committed to submit rankings for the top 25
football teams each week. These
panelists were randomly selected from among more than 300
nominations submitted by the 11
Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly
Division I-A) offices and the independent schools. The panel has
been designed to be a statistically valid representation of all 11
Football Bowl Subdivision
conferences and independent institutions. Today, 113 poll
participants submitted their top 25
football team rankings. One
panelist did not submit rankings due to personal reasons. Harris
Interactive applies a standard statistical practice that allows it
to identify potential instability, error or bias associated with
unusual ranking patterns. Those rankings that are identified
through the analysis are verified to ensure that each panelist’s
intent is accurately reflected.

This week’s rankings and other information about the poll can be
