College Football Rankings, Week 7: Harris Interactive Poll Has LSU No. 1

The first release of the Harris Interactive Poll (PDF) is out and it looks quite like the AP poll. The LSU Tigers are the No. 1 team, followed by Alabama and Oklahoma. The Tigers are the clear No. 1 with 71 first-place votes, but the Sooners actually have more than Alabama, 24-17.

Wisconsin, Boise State and Stanford each have one first-place vote. Boise State defeated Fresno State on Friday and Stanford humiliated Colorado on Saturday, 48-7. Those three teams round out the top five. The poll starts to flip teams starting at No. 10, going away from the AP poll. Michigan is No. 10 here, No. 11 in the AP.

Notre Dame is ranked No. 29, helped by Saturday's victory over Air Force, 59-33.

Here is the top 25 in the Harris Poll:
