BlogPoll: Florida No. 2, with Bama in its sights

Florida's collection of wins over well-regarded SEC teams has helped get the Gators all the way up to No. 2 in the BlogPoll rankings. What's more, the Gators are chewing into what was once a massive stockpile of Alabama first-place votes.

BCS standings: No guarantees for SEC champ

Week 9 Harris Poll: Florida closing on Oregon

The top of the Week 9 Harris Poll remained relatively unchanged from last week, as the top six teams held at their respective positions. South Carolina, who last week was No. 7, dropped to No. 16 in the Week 9 poll that goes toward the BCS rankings. Florida rolled the Gamecocks 44-11 on Saturday.

Alabama is still heavily favored atop the poll with 109 first-place votes, and Oregon comes in at second. Florida earned one first-place vote this week but sits at third, while Kansas State and Notre Dame round out the top-five.

Last week's No. 8 team, Florida State, fell to No. 10 after an unimpressive, 33-20 victory against the Miami Hurricanes.

The Michigan Wolverines at No. 20 and Ohio Bobcats at No. 23 leaped into the Harris Poll this week as Cincinnati and Arizona State fell out.

Week 9 AP: Florida, K-State tight behind Ducks

Oklahoma jumped two spots from 10th to eighth while South Carolina fell eight spots to 17th and West Virginia dropped to 25th in the Week 9 AP Poll.

Florida defeated South Carolina, 44-11, on Saturday which resulted in them getting a single first place vote but they remain in third behind Oregon and Alabama in the poll. The top six teams from Week 8 all maintained their positions as Alabama remained in the top spot and LSU is the highest-ranked one-loss team at sixth.

Alabama remained in the top spot of the poll with a 44-13 win on the road versus Tennessee on Saturday. The Crimson Tide will host No. 13 Mississippi State and No. 6 LSU in the next two weeks.

No. 5 Notre Dame will travel to play No. 8 Oklahoma and No. 3 Florida will host No. 12 Georgia this Saturday in games that will have strong implications for next week's polls.

BCS computer ranks Alabama 3rd

The Alabama Crimson Tide may be the undisputed No. 1 team in the country in most polls, but the Sagarin ELO_Chess computer ranking used in the BCS formula has the Tide ranked third behind the Florida Gators and the Kansas St. Wildcats. The ELO_Chess formula does not take margin of victory into account.

Florida and Kansas State vaulted ahead of Alabama based on the strength of their schedules so far. Florida already has wins over Texas A&M, LSU, and South Carolina, while Kansas State has notched victories over Oklahoma and West Virginia, and a respectable win over Iowa State. Alabama's only notable win this season is a victory over Michigan.

The Tide will face Mississippi State, LSU and Texas A&M in the coming weeks, so if they go undefeated through those games, they would probably rise back to No. 1. It's not a reason to panic yet for Tide fans, but simply a confirmation that KSU and Florida have played tougher schedules so far.

Here are the top-10 teams:

1. Florida
2. Kansas State
3. Alabama
4. LSU
5. Notre Dame
6. Oregon State
7. Oregon
8. Oklahoma
9. Ohio State
10. South Carolina
