College Football: Week 12 Polls and Opponents

Don’t expect much of a change at the top after this week’s play. Three of the top four are idle so unless Fresno State pulls off a miracle on the Blue Rug Friday night, things will not change much. As to ranked vs ranked… #8 Ohio State squares off against #21 Iowa, #9 Nebraska plays #18 Texas A&M, #13 Arkansas goes up against #22 Mississippi State, and #14 Virginia Tech takes on #24 Miami (Fla.).

[The three numbers for the rankings are from the AP Top 25, The Harris Coaches’ Poll, and CBSSports.com. An “NR” means that that particular poll did Not Rank the team.]
