Week 12 polls don’t look terribly different than Week 11. Except for the slide of Oregon down to the #6 slot after they got manhandled by Stanford. There are still six undefeated teams and only Northern Illinois looks to have an opponent with a credible challenge to that. They start things off on Wednesday night so stock up on snacks and beverages!
The numbers on the right are for the Associated Press, the Coaches’ Poll, the BCS standings and the CBSSports.com 126. NR means that the team was Not Ranked by that particular poll. I’m not sure for the reason that the CBSSports Poll is so different from the others except that it is the result one man’s opinion and not much else. There is a way you can vote as to whether a team is ranked too low or too high.
