With just 11 of last week's 25 teams in action last weekend, there are just a few changes to this week's blogpoll. The top 4 remain the same, while Oklahoma climbs to 5 with their 23-20 win over Nebraska in the Big 12 Championship Game.
Virginia Tech also moves up 2 spots for their 44-33 win over Florida State in the ACC Championship Game, the Hokies 11th straight win. In a perfect world, Boise State is probably still ranked over Virginia Tech given the head-to-head result at the beginning of the season. But you can't ignore the fact that the Hokies have won 11 straight and with the win over Florida State, own a better strength of schedule than the Broncos.
There's that, and the fact that we have nothing close to a perfect world. How else can you explain 8-4 Temple being left home for bowl season after beating the 8-4, BCS bowl bound UConn Huskies by two touchdowns?
Teams encouraging the most disagreement between ballots include Alabama (4.95), Nevada (4.24), LSU (4.24) and West Virginia (4.24)
