Alabama Solidifies Top Spot In BlogPoll, Sooners Drop

West Virginia is the top Big XII school in this week's BlogPoll (Photo by Justin K. Aller/Getty Images)

There are a total of six Big XII schools represented in this week's BlogPoll. West Virginia is the highest ranked conference team at #6 with Oklahoma sitting behind them at #7. The Sooners dropped to seventh place after a lethargic win over UTEP Saturday night. I'm actually shocked that they didn't drop lower but they are one spot below where I voted them. The most ridiculous thing about the poll this week is that someone (probably wouldn't be hard to guess who) gave a first place vote to Oklahoma State. With that all credibility for this poll goes out the window after the first weekend of college play. Thank you for taking your voting responsibility seriously.

See how my votes matched up to the actual poll after the jump.

Alabama puts a strangle hold on the top spot in the poll. After demolishing Michigan the Tide grabbed 81 first place votes and pretty much made the statement that someone will need to beat them in order for them to give up the top spot.

SB Nation BlogPoll College Football Rankings 2011

I got five out of 25 teams in the right spot (about the same as my picks over the weekend) and even had Tennessee and Stanford on my "Next Five Out" list.

Well, anyway. There it is, in all of its glory. Discuss!
