Week 11 AP Top 25

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- I just e-mailed in my Associated Press Top 25 ballot. Last night I was asked a few times where I would rank Penn State after its stunning loss to Iowa. Without looking at all the results, I said somewhere around No. 10, 11 or 12. But having done my homework, the Lions only slipped from No. 3 to No. 7. I suspect they'll be penalized more by the BCS computers and will likely be somewhere around No. 10 when the rankings are released tonight. I still have Alabama as my No. 1 and Texas Tech as my No. 2. Here's the ballot in its entirety:

1. Alabama (10-0)
2. Texas Tech (10-0)
3. Florida (8-1)
4. Texas (9-1)
5. Oklahoma (9-1)
6. Southern Cal (8-1)
7. Penn State (9-1)
8. Ohio State (8-2)
9. Boise State (9-0)
10. Oklahoma State (8-2)
11. Utah (10-0)
12. Georgia (8-2)
13. Missouri (8-2)
14. Michigan State (9-2)
15. North Carolina (7-2)
16. BYU (9-1)
17. LSU (6-3)
18. Ball State (9-0)
19. Florida State (7-2)
20. TCU (9-2)
21. Pittsburgh (7-2)
