2012 College Football Rankings: Kansas State No. 2, but Alabama runaway top team

Kansas State is No. 2, well behind top dog Alabama.

Jamie Squire

Kansas State has taken over the No. 2 spot in the Week 10 SB Nation BlogPoll, ahead of fellow undefeated teams Oregon at No. 3 and Notre Dame at No. 4. However, Alabama is a runaway No. 1, somehow even earning a higher average score than what should be possible.

The Wildcats are just .32 points per ballot ahead of Oregon following another impressive win, this week over Texas Tech. They take over the No. 2 spot from the Florida Gators, who lost to the Georgia Bulldogs, which comes in at No. 6 ahead of Florida at No. 7 and behind another SEC team, LSU at No. 5. Ohio State, Florida State and Clemson round out the Top 10.

The Wildcats have the second highest total of first-place votes with 11, well behind Alabama's 60. Notre Dame received three votes for No. 1, Oregon received two and somehow Ohio State continues to receive one.
