Jesse Kurtz's Top 25 Poll - Sunday, November 18th

LSU is still top dog (or cat???). Missouri and Kansas will battle next week for the #2 next week. West Virginia still looming, ready to jump at at shot at a national title. And Air Force, cracking the top 25??? It's true. Check out how I voted this week!

  Ok...  So I usually start by talking about my #1 and #2 team, then work my way down.  Not this week. 

  We're starting with my #24 team.  Your Air Force Falcons.  I thought long and hard about it this morning.  I even hesitated thinking that I was not being objective by giving AFA a top-25 nod.  That this may be perceived as a "homer" pick.  But then I realized, I would not be objective by leaving them out.  Air Force has proven over the last seven weeks (going 6-1) that they are no fluke.  Yesterday, the Falcons proved a lot by drilling SDSU.  Sure, they were suppose to win.  But they took care of business, and then some by racking up 569 rushing yards.   Now they're headed to a bowl game with a chance to win 10 games in a season.  I think they are a top 25 team.  No doubt.  There aren't a whole lot of teams in America who would like to see the Falcons on the opposing sidelines.

  As for the BCS national title chase.  LSU is still two games away from solidifying a championship berth.  Missouri and Kansas will clash this weekend for the right to go to the Big 12 title game.  Oregon, minus Dennis Dixon, falls to #9.  Oklahoma, fresh off an upset at Texas Tech, falls out of the championship race to #10.

Until next time, keep living the dream!  Jesse Kurtz, KKTV Sports Anchor/Reporter
