The diaspora of first-place votes from Alabama continues. The Cats picked up a second, while Oregon State notched its first. Oregon, Florida State, Georgia and Notre Dame also earned sporadic consideration.

Other than that, not many changes at the top. West Virginia moves up two spots to claim Stanford's location, while Texas hopped idle Florida on the strength of a questionable touchdown call.

Oregon State continues to impress with yet another road win over a decent conference foe, vaulting six more spots to No. 13, one spot higher than I voted the Beavers. USC slid one position to make way for them.

Stanford falls 10 spots to No. 18, exactly where the Associated Press put the Cardinal. But BlogPoll was not nearly so impressed as the AP by Washington's effort, leaving the Huskies off the poll entirely.

The whack-a-doodle votes this week were logged for Virginia Tech (huh?), Middle Tennessee State (lost at home to an FCS team!), Troy (wuh?), Washington State (for reals, yo?), UTSA (oh, hell no!) and Duke (Spurrier, is that you?).
