A Paw on the Media: Auburn #1 - Plains-ly Evident to One AP Voter

Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury-News voted Auburn #1 on his AP Top 25 ballot.  He provides a breakdown of his ballot with a brief explanation of his choices, including saying this about Auburn:
* Moved Auburn into the top spot after its victory over LSU and would have done it even if my sitting No. 1, Oklahoma, had beaten Missouri. (Losses by Air Force, Cincinnati and Texas greatly tarnished Oklahoma’s resume.)

I think Auburn is the easy pick for No. 1 at the moment based on quality victories: The Tigers have beaten five FBS teams with winning records (compared to one for Oregon, for instance).
