BRING ON THE CATS TOP 25 POLL: Week 7

This week (last week, actually — we're playing catch-up again), the Bring On The Cats Top 25 Poll is actually a Top 27 poll. Read on to find out why...

If Michigan just could have done this successfully at the end of the game against Michigan State, the Wolverines wouldn't have dropped 12 spots in the BOTC Top 25.

DISCLAIMER: This poll does not reflect the results of last week. It is a catch-up poll for the week before that. This week's poll can be found here.

Last week, the Bring On The Cats voters turned in one of the wackiest polls you ever will see. It was the week where we couldn't bear to part with either Mississippi or UCLA — resulting in an unprecedented three-way tie for 25th.

In other news, Michigan plummeted 12 spots after its freak blocked-punt loss to Michigan State, while both Texas A&M and Florida dropped after SEC defeats. The Rebels and Bruins lost to Memphis and Stanford, respectively.

The Tigers gained the most, rising nine spots after being unranked just two weeks ago. The other increases were more modest, with no other team moving up by more than five places. Utah stole a first-place vote from Ohio State.
