In the final SBNation BlogPoll the Notre Dame Fighting Irish garnered 42 of 56 first place votes. One-loss Alabama received 11 first place votes, while undefeated Ohio State received 2 and one-loss Florida received 1. Oregon finishes the regular season at #3 but received no first place votes. San Jose State, at #24, is the only newcomer to the poll, while losses in conference title games dropped Georgia two spots, UCLA two spots, Nebraska eight spots, and Kent State seven spots.

Interestingly, Oregon's #3 ranking is higher than their final ranking in the BCS and AP poll, showing that fans and bloggers around the country think very highly of this year's Ducks.

For the Pac-12, Stanford finishes at #7, Oregon State at #15, and UCLA at #17, despite back-to-back losses to Stanford to end the regular season. Arizona State, USC, and Arizona all received votes as well.
