College Football BlogPoll, Week 12: Syracuse Gets Two Votes

Just like with the AP and USA Today polls earlier this week, the Syracuse Orange are the only Big East Conference school to be recognized in this week’s College Football Blogpoll.

The Blogpoll is voted on by bloggers from SB Nation and other places, and is entirely unofficial. It’s fun, though, to compare how bloggers and ‘mainstream’ pollsters view the landscape.

The Blogpoll’s top teams Oregon, Auburn, TCU and Boise, flip-flopping TCU and Boise from the AP poll.

Oh, Syracuse? Back to the Orange. They snuck into the poll as an honorable mention with two votes. The folks from BlockU, covering Utah, and Men of the Scarlet and Gray, covering Ohio State, apparently like SU.

Syracuse is 7-3 on the season and became bowl eligible for the first time since 2004 with a 13-10 victory over Rutgers last Saturday. The Orange host the Connecticut Huskies Saturday night (7:30 p.m. ET) at the Carrier Dome.
