AP Top 25 sent

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Just e-mailed my AP Top 25 ballot. Penn State is still No. 7 in my eyes, behind Oklahoma, Alabama, Missouri, LSU, Texas and Texas Tech. Each team won yesterday, most of them convincingly. Alabama had a little late scare from Kentucky, but had that game in control for most of 60 minutes. Texas Tech blew out an OK Kansas State. The Red Raiders, though, will need to beat a ranked team to maintain that spot. They have two relatively easy games with Nebraska and Texas A&M next on the schedule. Kansas State, Texas and Oklahoma State await, however.
