Neal McCready votes ASU tops, again
No big surprise here.
Mobile (Alabama) Press-Register scribe Neal McCready voted Arizona State No. 1 in the AP football poll for the second straight week.
McCready told us last week in an e-mail that he chose the Sun Devils as the top team because they were undefeated and play in one of the two best conferences - Pac-10 and SEC - in the country.
Arizona State was idle this past week but moved from No. 12 to No. 7 in the AP poll. It is 7-0 overall and 4-0 in the Pac-10 but hasn't played a ranked team this season.
The schedule takes a brutal turn in the next weekends. The Sun Devils host No. 18 California, whose lost two straight games and fallen 16 spots in the poll. Then they play at No. 5 Oregon and UCLA and then host No. 9 USC and Arizona.
McCready told us in the e-mail "others will start to jump on the wagon" if the Sun Devils win against these ranked opponents.
