BlogPoll Top 25: Ohio Moves Up To #23, NIU And Toledo Receive Votes

Matt Kartozian-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Ohio moves up two spots to No. 23 while Northern Illinois and Toledo also receive votes in this week's BlogPoll Top 25. Alabama remains No. 1 but has seen its stranglehold on the top spot slip.

The MAC's own Ohio Bobcats finally saw some movement in this week's BlogPoll rankings, moving up two spots to No. 23. But they weren't the only Hustle Belt team to see some love from voters - both Northern Illinois and Toledo both received votes. As per usual, One Bronco Nation Under God continues to be the MAC's friend, putting all three teams of those teams in the top 25.

OBNUG was the only team to vote for Northern Illinois, placing them 20th on his ballot. It's the first BlogPoll votes the Huskies have received all season. Toledo, meanwhile, received a pair of votes for 24th, one by OBNUG (of course) and the other from SB Nation's Michigan blog, Maize N Brew.

Ohio showed up on 59 of the 87 ballots, as OBNUG put the Bobcats the highest at No. 5. Black Shoe Diaries, a Penn State blog, placed the Bobcats 10th and two other blogs put Ohio 13th.

In other news:

- Deserved moves up for South Carolina, West Viriginia and Florida following big wins.

- Teams 17-25 all moved up in the poll, an absurd transition for a poll that's always in flux. Iowa State made the biggest leap, going from an also-ran (38th) in the others receiving votes category to 25th. Cincinnati, Louisiana Tech and Texas A&M also vaulted up in the top 25.
