SB Nation BlogPoll: Seven teams claim a first place vote, Alabama still No. 1

Kevin Jairaj-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Alabama is still No. 1 in SB Nation's Week 6 BlogPoll, but with all of the upsets there are now seven teams who earned a first place vote

There is a lot of shakeup in the latest SB Nation BlogPoll, but the one constant is that Alabama and Oregon hold down the top two spots once again. However, the grip that Alabama had on the top spot is softening some as there are now seven teams who have a first-place, with Alabama taking home 64 of the 87 first-place nods.

While Oregon is No. 2, they actually have less first place votes than No. 3 South Carolina and No. 5 Florida. Other teams earning a first-place vote are West Virginia, Kansas State and Notre Dame. So, this thing is wide open.

As for the Mountain West schools, there are once again none in the top 25, and the closest is Boise State who is next in line of the poll. If they get past Fresno State this weekend, then they should earn a spot in next week's BlogPoll.

Once again, out poll is among the most that changed their ballot the most, and I believe this is the third straight week that we are one of the top five sites that drastically changed their polls from the week prior.
