BlogPoll Ballot: October 15

By David Sokol on October 15, 2012 at 12:00 pm

The Eleven Warriors ballot has been submitted and once again, there was plenty of movement across the board, including the Buckeyes dropping one spot after they eked out a win over Indiana, 52-49.

Once again, you can also check out our ballot, as well as all of the others, on the BlogPoll site while also following on Twitter at @BlogPollTop25.

1 Alabama Crimson Tide Alabama seems to be in a league of their own atop the SEC. They had no trouble with Missouri (no SEC team has trouble with them). 'Bama travels to Tennessee next week. --
2 Oregon Ducks The Ducks don't play until this Thursday night at Arizona State, which should be decent competition for Oregon. --
3 Florida Gators Florida has jumped up the polls quick-fast and is in position to compete for an SEC title. South Carolina comes to Gainesville this weekend. UP2
4 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Nothing has been luckier than the luck of the Irish. Notre Dame topped Stanford in OT via a goal-line stand that may be the call of the year by the referees. UP3
5 Kansas State Wildcats Is K-State the class of the Big 12? We'll see when they face an angry WVU team fresh off a loss this Saturday. UP1
6 LSU Tigers LSU eked out a tough one against South Carolina in an SEC showdown. Yes, they actually scored a few points, too (23). UP3
7 South Carolina Gamecocks Refer to above. South Carolina lost a close game at LSU. DOWN 4
8 Oklahoma Sooners Oklahoma took the Red River Shootout and turned it into the Red River Blowout. OU put up 63 points against Texas in a game that was over in the first few minutes. UP5
9 Ohio State Buckeyes The Buckeyes are 7-0 after giving up 49 points to Indiana, a team that won one game last year and zero Big Ten games. Thankfully, Urban has a high-powered offense that is capable of scoring at will; otherwise, who knows where OSU would be.  DOWN 1
10 Oregon State Beavers The other OSU keeps rolling, beating BYU, 42-24, and welcomes Utah to Reser Stadium this coming weekend. --
11 Southern Cal Trojans USC is getting it done and got it done against Washington, winning 24-14. Nothing spectacular, but the Trojans keep the ball moving. --
12 Florida State Seminoles FSU trucked BC, 51-7, and look to start rolling again against in-state rival Miami. We'll see what EJ Manuel and crew can do. --
13 Georgia Bulldogs Georgia has the week off and now they get Kentucky before going to Jacksonville for the "Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party" against #3 Florida, which is a huge game on the horizon for the SEC. UP1
14 Clemson Tigers Clemson was idle. They welcome VT this Saturday. UP2
15 Mississippi State Bulldogs Miss State took down Tennessee to stay undefeated. They continue their patsy schedule this Saturday against Middle Tennessee State before finally playing a decent team. Oh yeah, that decent team is #1 Alabama. UP6
16 West Virginia Mountaineers Well, the Mountaineers got exposed on D by Texas Tech and got blown out. Geno Smith's Heisman numbers took a hit (moving Braxton into the spotlight). DOWN 12
17 Louisville Cardinals Louisville started slow but ended up taking down Pittsburgh, 45-35. The Cards welcome USF this weekend. UP1
18 Cincinnati Bearcats Cincy played Fordham and had no trouble. They play Toledo before moving into the heart of the Big East schedule the following week. UP1
19 Rutgers Scarlet Knights Rutgers struggled a bit with Syracuse, but pulled it out. Their defense is their ticket to their first Big East championship and a BCS birth, if they can score some points on the other side of the ball. UP1
20 Texas Tech Red Raiders Tech owned West Virginia, 49-14, moving them into most people's top-25. --
21 Stanford Cardinal Stanford may have got hosed against ND, making the trip back to Cali a rather long and unfortunate one. A short trip down to Cal should cure the Cardinal blues. DOWN 4
22 Michigan Wolverines Michigan takes care of business against lesser Big Ten teams. Enough said. They beat Illinois, 45-0. --
23 Texas A&M Aggies In a late night gun show, LA Tech stormed back and nearly tied the game in the last few seconds, missing out on a two-point conversion to seal the deal for A & M. DOWN 1
24 Ohio Bobcats OU, Oh Yeah! Ohio is undefeated and raging towards a MAC championship. UP1
25 Boise State Broncos Boise State keeps on quietly winning, beating Fresno State, 20-10. Nothing crazy, but they're getting it done. DOWN 2
Dropouts: Texas Longhorns, Louisiana Tech Bulldogs
