Week 10 is in the books and Eleven Warriors has submitted our BlogPoll Top 25 ballot.

Ohio State's record remains spotless as they move into the top 5, passing Notre Dame this week.

Let us know what you think in the comments.

Once again, you can also check out our ballot, as well as all of the others, on the BlogPoll site .

1 Alabama Crimson Tide Alabama's late game heroics at LSU obviously keeps them at the top and in line for another national championship. 'Bama has it all: a great defense, a confident QB, a great running game, and offensive playmakers. They do continue a gauntlet schedule against a hot Texas A&M this weekend. --
2 Oregon Ducks RB Kenjon Barner lit up the USC defense for 321 yards and five TDs on the way to a 62-51 win in L.A. The Kiffins only could wow their opponent's performance. --
3 Kansas State Wildcats Coach Bill Snyder continues his streak of godliness as K-State upended Oklahoma State, 44-30, in front of a ruckus Manhattan, KS crowd. QB Collin Klein left the game a bit early, which could impact his Heisman campaign if he has to miss time. --
4 Ohio State Buckeyes The Buckeyes are the first team to 10-0 and QB Braxton Miller looks to be in good shape for an invite to New York City for the Heisman presentation, after putting up three TDs (27 total) against a miserable Illinois team. UP2
5 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Notre Dame continues to struggle at home against inferior competition. Pittsburgh (4-5) should have upset the Irish in South Bend, if it wasn't for a botched overtime FG that would have won it. DOWN 1
6 Georgia Bulldogs Georgia struggled out of the gate, but ended up blowing out Ole Miss, 37-10. The Dawgs control their own destiny for an SEC East championship. UP1
7 Florida State Seminoles The Seminoles were off this week and move up in the polls by default. UP2
8 Florida Gators Florida continued their struggles against SEC bottom feeder Missouri and needed a last-second INT to seal the deal on a 14-7 win. --
9 LSU Tigers In what was one of the games of the year so far, LSU let Alabama easily march down the field for a late fourth quarter TD. LSU then had miserable clock management as time expired on the Tigers and their SEC hopes. DOWN 4
10 Clemson Tigers As long as Clemson has Tajh Boyd, the Tigers will be competitive. Clemson beat Duke and reminded Blue Devil fans that basketball season is a few days away. UP1
11 Louisville Cardinals Louisville continues to take care of business against a cupcake schedule. Temple was no match in a 45-17 Cardinals win. UP2
12 South Carolina Gamecocks South Carolina was idle. DOWN 2
13 Texas A&M Aggies A&M took down Mississippi State, 38-13, behind Heisman contender QB Johnny Manziel. A date with Alabama looms this coming week. UP4
14 Oregon State Beavers Oregon State overcame an early deficit to take down Arizona State, 36-26. --
15 Oklahoma Sooners Landry Jones and the Sooners had no trouble with Iowa State, winning 35-20. DOWN 3
16 Stanford Cardinal The Big Ten may have some bad teams, but the Pac-12 has some awful ones. Stanford destroyed Colorado, 48-0. --
17 UCLA Bruins Is UCLA for real? Arizona is supposedly a good team, but UCLA beat them, 66-10. UP8
18 Nebraska Cornhuskers Nebraska used a last-second TD to beat Michigan State and stay on track to win the Big Ten Legends division crown. UP1
19 Texas Longhorns The Longhorns got a good win over in-state rival Texas Tech on the road. --
20 Louisiana Tech Bulldogs La Tech continues to be this year's surprise in the top 25. They beat down UTSA, 51-27, this weekend.  UP2
21 Mississippi State Bulldogs As soon as Mississippi State hit the tough part of their schedule, they've taken some beatings. First against Alabama, this weekend against Texas A&M. DOWN 6
22 Toledo Rockets Toledo continues their march towards a MAC title, beating Buffalo, 25-20. UP2
23 Southern Cal Trojans USC lost at home, in a shootout against Oregon. Their hopes to win the Pac-12, as well as playing in a BCS bowl, are gone. Same goes for Matt Barkley's Heisman chances. DOWN 3
24 Kent State Golden Flashes The MAC continues to be a hot conference and the Kent State Golden Flashes sit at 8-1. Alum Antonio Gates should be proud. --
25 Rutgers Scarlet Knights There is a real lack of talent at the bottom of the top 25, enabling Rutgers to crack the polls. It was either them, another MAC team, or a three-loss team like Michigan. --
Dropouts: Boise St. Broncos, Texas Tech Red Raiders, Arizona Wildcats
