The Guru's BlogPoll ballot, with notes below:
* Why is Louisville, one of the six remaining unbeaten teams, ranked behind two-loss teams? Well, because the Cardinals simply haven't beaten anybody of remotely any merit. I'm not even sure this would change if they run the table, unless they defeat somebody credible in the bowl game.
* Conference-by-conference tally: SEC (7), Pac-12 (5), Big Ten (4), Big 12 (3), ACC (2), Big East (1), MAC (1), WAC (1), Independent (1).
