2012 college football rankings: No area teams near top 25

With Boston College and Connecticut no where near the top 25, Florida State and Clemson serve as the lone representatives of the ACC, while Louisville and Rutgers represent the Big East in the SB Nation BlogPoll.

The Boston College Eagles, Connecticut Huskies, and UMass Minutemen all have losing records and don't appear anywhere in the SB Nation BlogPoll Top 25.

After Alabama lost to Texas A&M, the Oregon Ducks became the new top team and the Crimson Tide slipped to fourth. The Aggies rose to No. 10, up five spots from last week, but the biggest riser in the BlogPoll this week was the Michigan Wolverines, who moved up 10 spots to No. 24.

The team that dropped the most spots was Connecticut's Big East conference mates, the Louisville Cardinals. Louisville remained in the top 25 after losing to Syracuse, but slipped to No. 19. Rutgers is the only other Big East team in the poll, coming in at No. 22.

Boston College also sees two teams from their conference in the top 25. Florida State comes in at No. 7 and the Clemson Tigers are No. 11, representing the ACC.

Kent State from the MAC, the home of UMass, comes in at No. 23.
