Week Twelve BlogPoll Results: The Aggies Have A First Place Vote?

The week twelve BlogPoll is here!

Thomas Campbell-US PRESSWIRE

The week twelve BlogPoll results have been released and the Fighting Irish take No. 1 in the Week 13 BlogPoll, and hold a large lead on No. 2.

That second-ranked team is Alabama, which gets a paltry four first-place votes to the Domers' 63 of 71, and which is almost a point and a half per ballot back of the lone BCS-eligible unbeaten left. It's the sort of lead Alabama held at some points this year, and one that the Irish are unlikely to relinquish without a loss to USC this Saturday.

While Georgia moved up to No. 3 in most rankings after the Oregon and Kansas State losses, the BlogPoll is much kinder to the Ducks, leaving them at No. 3 after a loss to the BlogPoll's No. 10 squad. Georgia follows at No. 4, with Kansas State rounding out the top five.

Florida, despite its impressive sheaf of wins, remains at No. 6, perhaps because bloggers have had the stomach to watch the Gators' wretched offense struggle against Missouri, Louisiana, and Jacksonville State. Florida's weekend foe, Florida State, is No. 8, one spot behind former Florida coach Urban Meyer and his undefeated Ohio State outfit, which moves up to No. 7, its highest ranking of 2012. LSU and Stanford finish out the top 10, with the Cardinal booting Texas A&M to No. 11 despite the Aggies receiving their first first-place vote of 2012.
