Frogs O' War Blogpoll: Week 3

This weeks lessons in polling: beating Manziel: good. Losing to the Akron Zips: bad. Beating Kent State: otherworldly.

That, friends, is an Akron Zip.  Lose against it at your peril.

25 Fresno State 10

Also receiving votes: Northern Ill., Arizona, Florida, Georgia Tech, Wisconsin.

Why the asterisk for Ole Miss?  No, it's not because beating Texas is a meaningless victory.  Rather it's because one of our bloggers liked that win so much he ranked the Rebels twice.

Movers and shakers: LSU's win over Kent State propelled it from 14th last week to third this week; Arizona State's (weird) win over Wisconsin also gave the Sun Devils an eleven spot jump.  Oklahoma (nine spots), UCLA (eight) and South Carolina (eight) also rose significantly.

Michigan's scare against Akron (maybe the Wolverines will fear the 'Roo going forward) produced an eleven spot drop in this week's poll.  Clearly FOW doesn't fear the dad-gum roo.  Wisconsin dropped eight spots.
