There should be no surprise that Georgia returns to No. 1 on my Associated Press Top 25 ballot. After that, there were plenty of changes.

Tennessee falls from No. 1, but I only dropped the Vols to No. 4 — ahead of undefeated No. 5 TCU. LSU made the biggest jump on my ballot, climbing from No. 19 to No. 8. I also dropped Alabama and Clemson out of my top 10.

I’m sure everyone will agree (enter your favorite laugh track).

On to this week’s carnage — or rankings, if you prefer — compared to Action Network’s senior writer Collin Wilson’s power ratings.

Run for the hills — this must be a sign the world is ending. Collin agrees with my top 3: Georgia, Ohio State and Michigan. Collin and I also agree on Oregon, ranking the Ducks No. 6. We also both have Tennessee and TCU in our Top 10.

The biggest disagreements were UCLA and Utah. I ranked UCLA No. 7, but Collin has the Bruins No. 17. I ranked Utah No. 10, while Collin put the Utes No. 18.

For my teams I ranked between Nos. 11-20, Collin has only two ranked in similar positions. We both have USC and Penn State grouped between Nos. 11-20.

Of these 10 teams, the biggest disparities are Tulane, NC State and Liberty. I ranked Tulane No. 16, and Collin’s ratings have the Green Wave No. 44. I ranked NC State No. 17, while Collin’s ratings have the Wolfpack at No. 47. Finally, I put Liberty at No. 18, but Collin power-rated the Flames at No. 67.

Collin and I both have Illinois ranked between No. 21-25. The biggest difference of the final five teams on my ballot is No. 23 Washington. Collin rates the Huskies No. 34.

Also, Collin had six teams in the top 25 of his power ratings that I did not rank on my Top 25 ballot this week: No. 15 Baylor, No. 16 Oklahoma, No. 21 Mississippi State, No. 22 Minnesota, No. 23 Wisconsin and No. 24 Wake Forest.
