SBN BlogPoll, Week 7: Ducks hold at #2, Big XII on the rise

New, comments

Big wins by Oklahoma and Texas Tech have them vaulting up the SB Nation BlogPoll, though Alabama and Oregon look strong at the top.

Halfway through the college football regular season, the SB Nation BlogPoll is still in disagreement, with six different teams garnering a #1 vote, including Ohio State. I know, I don't get it either. Alabama is still the clear #1, with Oregon comfortably slotted in the #2 spot. Florida moves into third after last week's #3, South Carolina, lost to LSU. The biggest loser for Week 7? West Virginia, who plummets from #4 to #17 after getting smacked around by Texas Tech. By contrast, South Carolina only falls four spots after coming up short in Death Valley against LSU.

On the Blog Awards front, which you can find HERE, ATQ's crazy-ass ballot shows up again in the Top 5 for Swing, the overall change from one week to the next, and comes in third for the Chip Kelly Award for Boldness, for having the poll most wildly divergent from the full poll. I know you all think Noah and I are just crazy for ranking teams the way we do, but we're just trying to win the Chip Kelly Award. I just want an excuse to have a testicle trophy custom-made and emblazoned with the ATQ logo. Check out the full poll, and tell us what you think!
