Week 8 College Football Bloggers Top-25 Poll: Buckeyes Fall To #12

I guess the bloggers had it right after all.  Last week, it was the bloggers that had Oregon, not Ohio State at #1.  Turns out, the Ducks likely deserved the top ranking more than the Buckeyes.  Ohio State lasted just one week in the top spot before being blown out by Wisconsin last weekend.

This week, the bloggers kept Oregon at #1, but there was plenty of shuffling after that.

Boise St. took over #2, with Oklahoma, Auburn and TC rounding out the top 5.  Michigan State is the highest Big Ten team in the poll, sitting at #6.  Wisconsin moved all the way to #10, with Ohio State at #12 and Iowa at #13.

Ohio State's 10 position fall was tied for the largest of the week with Nebraska who also fell 10 spots after their loss to Texas. South Carolina, who last week beat Alabama, lost this past weekend to fall nine spots.
