In the interactive chart below, you can see how voters in different states have ranked each team in this week's AP Top 25. While there are certain predictable trends with many of the top teams, other trends seem to contradict the idea of regional bias. Clemson, for example, is overrated (being ranked higher than their AP poll position) in states on the opposite side of the country. Many of the southeastern states actually have then underrated (ranked lower than their AP position).
