Alabama continues to hold on to the top spot in the SB Nation Blog Poll this week, just like every other poll in existence, as they get ready to venture into Death Valley Saturday night to take on LSU, who is #5.
Oregon St. dropped to #13, just as they did in the AP poll, 2 below where they wound up in the BCS rankings.
Oregon is now the only Pac-12 or western team in the top 10. The Ducks held on to #3, though they saw Kansas St. vault over them to #2 after Florida fell, opening up that spot.
Stanford rose to #15, more a product of some of the week's upsets, than their less than overwhelming win over Washington St.
USC, one of the upset victims, dropped to #18, and Arizona, the team that upset them, broke back into the top 25, at #24. UCLA also got in, at #25, putting half the Pac-12 in.
Boise St. is the only other western team ranked, at #20 and climbing.
