2012 College Football Rankings: Kansas State moves up two spots to fifth

US PRESSWIRE

The Oklahoma Sooners also stood pat at 12th in the latest SB Nation BlogPoll.

A shocking, late season loss to the Baylor Bears likely kept the Kansas St. Wildcats out of the BCS national championship but with a Big 12 finale win over the Texas Longhorns, they stayed put at No. 5 in the latest SB Nation BlogPoll rankings.

Kansas State gets a couple of consolation prizes despite missing out on a national title shot. They finished the season with a Big 12 Championship trophy, quarterback Collin Klein is a Heisman Trophy candidate and they'll play the team they were set up to play in the national championship for many weeks, the Oregon Ducks, in the Fiesta Bowl on Jan. 3.

The Oklahoma Sooners are clinched a share of the Big 12 title with and they sit at No. 12 in the SB Nation BlogPoll after taking down the TCU Horned Frogs in their regular season finale. The Sooners will reunite with former Big 12 rival, the Texas A&M Aggies, in the Cotton Bowl on Jan. 4.

Here's a look at the full ballot from week 14.
