Bohls: Clemson, Louisville swapping spots on ballot

Posted October 2nd, 2016


Finally, we’re seeing some separation.

Three of the Top 10 teams on my Associated Press ballot lost but only because they were paying three other teams in my top 10.

By virtue of its squeaker over powerful Louisville, Clemson and the Louisville Cardinals basically swapped positions. I rushed Clemson from No 7 to No. 2 and grudgingly dropped the Cards from No. 2 to No. 7. They might should be No. 3.


I have two Big 12 teams on my ballot with Baylor at No. 14 and West Virginia at No. 19. Both survived big scares.

Texas A&M had a workmanlike win over awful South Carolina and rose to No. 8 on my vote.

Newcomers included Colorado at No. 22, Air Force at No. 23 and Western Michigan at No. 24.
