Tim Brando is no stranger to taking the contrarian opinion about college football polls, especially when it comes to so-called brand names.

But his latest top 10 is largely in line with the mainstream polls across the country.

The one difference is UCLA is ranked No. 16 in the AP Top 25 poll, and Brando has the Bruins at No. 10. He said they deserved a higher rating after dispatching of LSU on Saturday in the Rose Bowl.

Three SEC teams are in the top 10, including Alabama, Georgia and Texas A&M, another conventional decision that aligns with other pollsters.

As the season moves along, look for Brando to continue to take a contrarian view from the rest of the major polls.
