College Football Rankings 2011: LSU Moves To No. 1 In Blog Poll

The Week 5 BlogPoll was released and the LSU Tigers and Alabama Crimson Tide jumped the Oklahoma Sooners to create a new top three. LSU is the overwhelming top choice by receiving 71 of the 92 first-place votes.

Unlike the coaches poll, the Boise St. Broncos were not jumped by any team and remain at the No. 4 spot, but the Oklahoma St. Cowboys are very close to surpassing the Broncos. Expect Boise State to be challenged and jumped in the rankings by other teams due to their strength-of-schedule. The TCU Horned Frogs moved up to No. 23 after their win over Portland State.

The idle Stanford Cardinal dropped a spot as Oklahoma State made their big jump after defeating Texas A&M. The Oregon Ducks stayed still at No. 11 after their dominating win over the Arizona Wildcats. The final Pac-12 team to be ranked is the Arizona St. Sun Devils who moved into the No. 24 spot after their late-night win over formerly ranked USC Trojans.
