NCAA Football Rankings 2012: Horned Frogs, Longhorns out of BlogPoll Top 25

Tom Pennington

TCU and Texas are on the outside looking in of the latest BlogPoll Top 25.

TCU's loss to Texas Tech resulted in the Horned Frogs missing the Top 25 of the SB Nation's latest BlogPoll. TCU and Texas show up in the others receiving votes, while the Red Raiders have moved up five spots to No. 13. Struggling Baylor and SMU, meanwhile, are nowhere to be found.

The Big 12 is well-represented in the BlogPoll with four teams. Kansas State tops the list at No. 4 following its blowout on the road at West Virginia (No. 25). The Wildcats received four first-place votes. The Oklahoma Sooners are at No. 8.

Alabama remains at No. 1 following its win over Ole Miss. The Crimson Tide face Mississippi State (No. 12) this weekend in a battle of undefeated SEC teams. Like in the BCS, Florida is ahead of Oregon at No. 2. The Gators are a few days removed from an impressive win over South Carolina. Notre Dame at No. 5, LSU, Oregon State, Oklahoma, Ohio State and USC round out the Top 10. Texas A&M is at No. 21.

The BlogPoll is comprised of the ballots of more than 100 college football bloggers. Here's the complete Top 25:
