BlogPoll Ballot: November 12

By David Sokol on November 12, 2012 at 12:00 pm

This week's ballot has been submitted and the top 25 has been shaken up.

The Buckeyes, idle this weekend, dropped one spot.

With Alabama losing, there is a new #1 for the first since Alabama ousted USC after week one.

Please feel free to let us know how you feel in the comments and once again, you can also check out our ballot, as well as all of the others, on the BlogPoll site.

1 Oregon Ducks With Alabama's loss to A&M, Oregon jumps up to the #1 spot after taking down Cal, 59-17. Ducks fans are just hoping their star RB Kenjon Barner is healthy. UP1
2 Kansas State Wildcats K-State continues their remarkable run towards the BCS title game after taking down TCU. Could this be a non-SEC BCS title game? UP1
3 Notre Dame Fighting Irish Notre Dame won the Holy War against BC and plays a weak Wake Forest team before finishing the season against USC. The computers love ND, but the voters don't have them in their top 2 as of yet. UP2
4 Georgia Bulldogs The Dawgs crushed Auburn and will be playing in the SEC title game, probably against Alabama in a few weeks. The Dawgs are looking for a BCS berth. UP2
5 Ohio State Buckeyes The Buckeyes were idle, but watched heavily favored Alabama drop behind them on this week's ballot. The end of their schedule happens to be the meat of their schedule and a trip to Madison is on the docket for this weekend. Although it's hard to penalize a team with no losses and on a bye, OSU drops one spot. DOWN 1
6 Alabama Crimson Tide A dream season was ruined by Johnny Football and Texas A&M. Alabama still has an outside shot to get back to the title game, but things need to work out for them. Yeah, they probably will. DOWN 5
7 Texas A&M Aggies Johnny Freakin Football! A&M had a 20-0 lead at Alabama and won the game 29-24 in one of the upsets of the year, if not the top. UP6
8 LSU Tigers LSU took down Mississippi State handily, winning 37-17. UP1
9 Florida State Seminoles Florida State had a tough outing against struggling Va Tech on Thursday night, but held on for the win. A date with Florida is on the horizon. DOWN 2
10 Clemson Tigers Maryland was no match for Clemson. But hey, when is Maryland a match for anyone these days? --
11 South Carolina Gamecocks South Carolina whooped a sorry Arkansas team, 38-20, and welcomes powerhouse Wofford to Columbia next week. Woo! UP1
12 Florida Gators Florida needed a last-second punt block returned for a TD miracle to beat Louisiana-Lafayette at home. The Gators showed that maybe they aren't elite, but they do still only have one loss (to UGA). DOWN 4
13 Stanford Cardinal Stanford stayed alive in the Pac-12, beating Oregon State. A huge, huge matchup at Oregon on Saturday could be the primetime game to watch. UP3
14 Oklahoma Sooners Oklahoma continues to truck along, quietly beating Baylor, 42-34. UP1
15 Nebraska Cornhuskers Nebraska fans held their collective breath for most of their game with Penn State, as Penn State held an early lead. The Cornhuskers were able to keep their Legends division lead over Michigan, however, with a surge to win, 32-23. UP3
16 UCLA Bruins UCLA beat Washington State, 44-36, and plays rival USC this coming week at home. UP1
17 Texas Longhorns Texas continues their mediocre season, destroying Iowa State, 33-7. UP2
18 Oregon State Beavers Oregon State lost a ton of steam, losing to Stanford on Saturday. The Beavers have to hope a lot of things work out for them in this Pac-12 race. DOWN 4
19 Louisville Cardinals Louisville may have been one of the more overrated teams of the 2012 campaign. The Cards were run over by Syracuse. Yeah, I said Syracuse, by a score of 45-26. DOWN 8
20 Southern Cal Trojans USC had no trouble with ASU and travels up the road to play UCLA. Then they get Notre Dame in what could be a season-ruining game for the Irish. UP3
21 Mississippi State Bulldogs The most unknown SEC team keeps getting beaten badly by their SEC brethren.  --
22 Oklahoma State Cowboys The third OSU demolished West Virginia, 55-34. Perhaps WVU should move back to the Big East so they can win some games. --
23 Wisconsin Badgers Woaw. Wisconsin showed the rest of the Big Ten how one is supposed to beat up on Indiana. Wisconsin beat the Hoosiers, 62-14. --
24 Michigan Wolverines Michigan was saved by a long bomb tip catch with a few seconds remaining to force OT with Northwestern. Back-up QB Devin Gardner has Wolverine fans excited for next year. --
25 Rutgers Scarlet Knights Rutgers could win the Big East and they control their own destiny. However, a trip to Cincinnati and a game against Louisville stand in their way. --
Dropouts: Louisiana Tech Bulldogs, Toledo Rockets, Kent St. Golden Flashes
