Chris Dufresne's top 25 rankings

December 03, 2009|Chris Dufresne

Rankman's No. 1 team since Day 1, the Texas Foghorns, can see the lighthouse at the end of the channel even if some would argue they're only the second-best team in Texas located off Interstate 35. And Florida, Rankman's No. 2 since Day 2, has only to beat Alabama in Atlanta to play in its third Bowl Championship Series title game since 2006. Texas versus Florida at the Rose Bowl on Jan. 7: Who could have predicted that, other than everybody? Nebraska, which faces Texas in Saturday's Big 12 Conference title game, is the only hope left to knock this season off its axis. RK.
