At this point in the fall it’s anyone’s game. Any team in the top ten could potentially win a national championship, and so far most teams have done something very positive, and one or two things that drag them down a bit.

Arkansas State, having won two tournaments in a row, and having beaten Life in the last one, jump to #1. St. Mary’s is a bit of a crap-shoot. Yes they won the Battle in the Bay, but they didn’t win the West Coast, and we could just as easily weight other results heavier.

Still, St. Mary’s edged Cal this past weekend, and that ends up pushing Life down to #3, although the Running Eagles could easily be #2.

UCLA was #1, and they fielded a young, almost development side in the BIB. As it was, they did well to win three games on Sunday to win the Bowl. Should they be dropped summarily? Maybe, maybe not. We pick a middle ground, having UCLA own the results regardless of who is on the field, and at the same time we recognize this wasn’t their front-line squad.

Central Washington did well enough, but Cal was closer to St. Mary’s than CWU was, so CWU stays lower. Dartmouth didn’t win the Yale 7s, but, like UCLA, they rested a bunch of players.

BYU won the Rocky Mountain 7s, but it’s not clear how solid any of these teams are in comparison to other regions. So Colorado State and Colorado move in to the Top 25, and BYU moves up, but not by much.
