And here’s how it should’ve looked based on Week 1 performances

1. Georgia — Frightening. If Todd Gurley’s four-touchdown performance wasn’t enough, try Nick Chubb. And a blitz-heavy defense led by Amarlo Herrera and Leonard Floyd. The Bulldogs are loaded and get a bye week before South Carolina.
2. Texas A&M — No quarterback in the country looked better against quality competition than Kenny Hill, ahem, Kenny Trill. With better secondary play, the Aggies are legit and should have one of the nation’s top offenses throughout the season.
3. Oregon — Another blowout win over Central Texas Clearwater Institute. Marcus Mariota’s Heisman campaign begins with four total touchdowns.
4. FSU — Famous Jameis didn’t bring his A-game, but ‘Noles forced a late fumble to survive. The 37-31 final wasn’t an indictment on Florida State, but instead proof that Oklahoma State’s a legitimate Top 25 team.
5. Auburn — There’s a couple questions up front defensively, but that offense appears to be just as talented — if not better — than last season’s record-setting attack.
6. Alabama — Blake Sims managed the game, T.J. Yeldon and Derrick Henry did what they wanted on the ground, but Alabama’s defense appeared vulnerable. Teams often make their biggest improvements between the first and second game and we expect the Crimson Tide to return to the elites this weekend.
7. Oklahoma — Trevor Knight wasn’t perfect, but he didn’t need to be. The Sooners are the BIG XII favorite and the meat of the schedule starts in two weeks vs. Tennessee.
8. Michigan State — The Spartans cruised in their opener, as expected. Now comes a showdown with Oregon that will have a substantial impact on the College Football Playoff at the end of the regular season.
9. Baylor — Vinyl bricks or not, the Bears’ new stadium is fantastic. That was the only interesting talking point during a blowout of SMU other than quarterback Bryce Petty’s back injury.
10. Ohio State — Navy’s always a headache for bigger, faster and stronger opponents and the Buckeyes, playing without Braxton Miller, nearly found out the hard way.
11. LSU — The Tigers, who received one first-place vote Tuesday, showed resiliency against the Badgers, downing one of the Big Ten’s heavyweights this season with 21 unanswered points in the second half.
12. USC — Impressive debut for coach Steve Sarkisian as his Trojans racked up 105 plays for 701 yards of total offense in a thumping of Fresno State.
13. Stanford — Without Derek Mason as its defensive coordinator, Stanford gave up just 115 total yards to UC Davis. Good luck to Vanderbilt this season after a 30-point home loss to Temple.
14. Ole Miss — The Rebels saw Bad Bo Wallace and Good Bo Wallace, but the defense was dominant throughout during a win over Boise State last Thursday.
15. Notre Dame — Quarterback Everett Golson was sharp in his return, throwing for 295 yards and two touchdowns during the Irish’s 31-point victory.
16. UCLA — The Bruins have serious issues up front and didn’t pass the eye test whatsoever at Virginia. Desmond Howard and Lee Corso picked this team to win the national championship, but they’ve got a long way to go.
17. Arizona State — Is there a balanced offense in Tempe? It appears that way after the Sun Devils erupted for 570 total yards and 32 first downs against Weber State.
18. Nebraska — Ameer Abdullah’s Heisman campaign kicked off with a 232-yard outing, but can the Huskers stay nationally relevant throughout the season?
19. Kansas State — The Wildcats’ Thursday night bout with Auburn in three weeks should be interesting.
20. Wisconsin — Melvin Gordon’s a monster, but the Badgers now have quarterback issues post-LSU.
21. Oklahoma State — Mike Gundy’s squad is the second-best team to have lost Saturday night and looked impressive doing it. The Cowboys were 50 yards away from beating No. 1 Florida State.
22. South Carolina — Preseason hype was too much for the Gamecocks, along with a freight train known as Texas A&M. Another loss this weekend snaps South Carolina’s four-year streak of being ranked.
23. Clemson — The Tigers will be fine offensively without Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins. And the good news? They won’t have to worry about Todd Gurley anymore.
24. Louisville — Bobby Petrino won his first game in his second stint at the program in convincing fashion, 31-13 over Miami on Monday night.
25. Mississippi State — Sorry Mizzou, but the Bulldogs dominated defensively in a shutout win over Southern Miss and the previously ranked Tigers? Not so much after giving up 365 yards and 18 points to South Dakota State.

SEC’s receiving votes: Mizzou, Tennessee, Kentucky.
