This was a tough one. I dropped OSU pretty significantly, even though a win on Saturday likely would elevate the Buckeyes to number one, and I may bump them up after a close loss. Still, I couldn't justify ranking them ahead of any of the teams I rank ahead of them. I debuted East Carolina at #9. While most of the rankings at this point are projection-based, East Carolina has filled out its resume more than any other team. It will be difficult for ECU to move up to any degree.
