College Football Rankings: BlogPoll Keeps TCU At #3

Near upsets simply aren;t the same as the full-blown versions.  Near-misses involving TCU, Oregon and Ohio State were not enough to create major movement in this week's Blog-Poll.  The big difference between this week's poll and the polls done by USA Today or AP is TCU hanging on the #3 spot.  In the other polls, voters were much harder on TCU for their close win, moving Boise State above the Horned Frogs.

The same can not be said further down the poll where several upsets sent some teams falling and falling hard.  Utah is one such team whose beat down by Notre Damn took the Utes from #15 to completely out of the poll.  The biggest gain this week was Florida State who jumped 13 spots back into the poll at #25.

As for Ohio State, they remained at #9 heading into their Saturday Night showdown against Iowa.  The Hawkeyes didn't do themselves any favors losing to Northwestern on Saturday.  They fell to #20 in the poll.

The entire poll is below:
