SB Nation BlogPoll College Football Top 25 Rankings "

Now onto the analysis of our ballot are up next.

Mr. Xanax

# Blog Team Ballot Swing
1 The Owl's Nest Temple Owls ballot 78
2 Mountain West Connection Utah Utes ballot 92
3 Eleven Warriors Ohio St. Buckeyes ballot 100
4 The Ciskie Blog Wisconsin Badgers ballot 108
5 Blogger So Dear Wake Forest Demon Deacons ballot 110

This week the whammy falls on Utah again since the Mountain West Connection isn't budging on the Utes at #6. This week Utah takes on… sigh… Colorado State. Utah is a 31-point favorite.

 

The CKA and SBA go to the blogs with the highest and lowest bias rating, respectively. Bias rating is calculated by subtracting the blogger's vote for his own team from the poll-wide average. A high number indicates you are shameless homer. A low number indicates that you suffer from an abusive relationship with your football team.

The CK Award

# Blog Team Ballot Bias
1 Mountain West Connection Utah Utes ballot 4.03
2 Burnt Orange Nation Texas Longhorns ballot 3.16
3 Buckeye Commentary Ohio St. Buckeyes ballot 1.49
4 Eleven Warriors Ohio St. Buckeyes ballot 0.49
5 The Ciskie Blog Wisconsin Badgers ballot 0.44

Utah had the whammy last week after a week off and managed to cover a 20.5-point spread against Wyoming by winning 30-6. The CK Award has fallen to .500 on the year for the first time in forever. Maybe some of its mojo was stolen by the earlier confusion about who, exactly, deserves the award. Bugs and all that.
