2012 College Football Rankings: Ducks maintain stranglehold over third spot

The Oregon Ducks were ranked third in the latest edition of the SB Nation BlogPoll.

Scott Olmos-US PRESSWIRE

There wasn't a whole lot of movement in the SB Nation BlogPoll this week in the Pac-12 as only Stanford, UCLA and Oregon State played last week.

The Cardinal moved up one spot to No. 7 following their 27-24 win over the UCLA Bruins in the Pac-12 championship game. The Bruins, despite the loss, held their ground at No. 17.

The Oregon State Beavers moved up one spot to No. 15 after 77-3 obliteration of Nicholls State. The game was supposed to be played in the first week of the Beavers season but was postponed and rescheduled for on Dec. 1.

The Oregon Ducks remained the highest Pac-12 team in the BlogPoll, hanging out at No. 3 for yet another week. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Alabama Crimson Tide were first and second, sharing most of the first place votes. Despite coming in fourth, the Florida Gators received one first-place vote and the Ohio State Buckeyes received two, while coming in at No. 8.
