Week two provided some great match ups, with Stanford going down to USC, and Oregon beating Michigan State in a top 10 matchup. There were also some disappointments with Washington State losing to Nevada, and some close calls with UCLA, Arizona, CU, Washington and Oregon State almost losing to lower division/conference foes.

Here are our individual ballots for this week:

The big gainers this week are USC, who leap frogged Stanford after beating them in an awesome, defensive showdown on Saturday, also Cal, who beat Sac State to go 2-0 on the season. Oregon, for the first time this season, is the consensus #1 team in the Block U power poll. UCLA continues their slide, after another poor performance versus Memphis, as does UW and OSU. I feel like UCLA may be one bad loss away from completely coming apart. Colorado actually moves up in the poll, but basically only because Washington State has started the season 0-2 with two bad losses. Frankly, it looks like Oregon and everyone else after that. This conference season is going to be nuts and totally unpredictable.

What are your thoughts on our week three rankings? Are we close? Which team(s) do we have over/underrated?
