This week I bring you a new format to our World Famous Weekly C-USA Power Rankings.
We will still bring you who we think are the creme de la creme each week, though now we are submitting our rankings as a ballot to our SB Nation bros over at Underdog Dynasty, combined with blogs and writers, from UTSA, Old Dominion, Marshall, LA Tech, North Texas.
Here is how we voted, and how everyone else did.
