No matter the order, the Top 3 were known, and since Florida/Alabama have to meet if both stay unbeaten, the order doesn't matter.
Somewhat surprised with Boise at 4, ahead of 2 BCS conference unbeaten teams.
Iowa/Cincy could be a fun little battle of off the radar BCS teams trying to sneak in if they can run the table and get help in front of them.
Oklahoma at 15 with 3 losses (though close against good teams) is surprising, especially since they are a spot ahead of a 1 loss BYU team that knocked of the Sooners on a neutral field.

#15 in the BCS is actually Oklahoma State.

Not a lot of complaints here. LSU is still overrated I think but Alabama should take care of them and make the race for top one loss team between USC/Oregon and Miami/Georgia Tech

The AP poll is not part of the BCS but Alabama actually jumped Florida for number one, which is rare for #1 to drop without losing. I don't know how much Florida's lead is in the polls that are part of the BCS but I wouldn't be surprised if Alabama was closing in on Florida in those too.

In the 10/11 Harris Poll, Florida lead by 147 points over Alabama. In the 10/18 Harris Poll, it was down to 66.
If we assume that every single Harris Poll voter had Florida somewhere in their top 3, then on 10/11 the proportion was 99-11-4 (1st-2nd-3rd). On 10/18 it was something like 77-26-11. In other words, Florida lost 22 first place votes, with 15 voters dropping them down to #2, and 7 voters dropping them from #1 to #3.

Not as much swing in the USA Today poll.
On 10/11 Florida was 53-5-1 (1st-2nd-3rd), and on 10/18 they had fallen to 49-9-1.
Alabama went from 5-11-43 (again, this number is only accurate if they were in the top 3 for every voter) to 9-23-27.
So most of the gain was people moving Alabama ahead of Texas into the #2 spot.
It is interesting that Florida got one 3rd place vote both weeks, and Texas got one 1st place vote both weeks. I wonder if that's the same coach? And no, Mack Brown is not one of the coaches who has a vote this year.

5 of the 6 computer polls publish rankings last week, and Florida maintained a .04 lead over Alabama in those rankings.

Normally I'd agree this is just a weird move, but for the past three years I've missed the first day of the draft due to non-sports friends always making plans that weekend.
