2012 College Football Rankings: Ohio State falls 2 spots, Kent State at No. 23 in BlogPoll

The Buckeyes dropped to No. 9 in the latest BlogPoll, while Kent State appeared at No. 23.

Greg Bartram-US PRESSWIRE

The Week 11 SB Nation BlogPoll is out and the Ohio State Buckeyes fell two spots after an idle weekend. The Buckeyes are the lowest ranked undefeated team, but they have a big opportunity to climb back up the top 10 with their final two games. The Buckeyes will meet their two fiercest rivals, Wisconsin and Michigan, in their last two games of the 2012 season. With no postseason in 2012, you can expect Urban Meyer to have his team ready to play against the Badgers and Wolverines in what is their de facto postseason.

The MAC is also having a banner season, with several teams making appearances in various polls. This week marked Kent State's first showing in the top 25 since 1973, and the Golden Flashes come in at No. 23 in the BlogPoll. Ohio and Toledo both fall in the "others receiving votes" category. Here's the complete BlogPoll for Week 11:
