Week 6 of the BlogPoll Top 25 sees little change, as Alabama holds on to the top spot and the rest of the top seven falls in line. Oregon remains at No. 2, garnering three first-place votes. This week, they aren't the only team from Oregon getting some BlogPoll recognition.

Could it have been a mistake, as happened with the vote from Kansas blog Rock Chalk Talk earlier this season? Turns out it wasnt, as Lt. Philip Nolan, of Miami blog The 7th Floor, just liked what he saw from the Cougs on Saturday, and placed them at No. 20:
