NCAA Football Rankings 2012: Gators and Seminoles will be a top ten battle on Saturday

Al Messerschmidt

Both the Gators and the Seminoles are in the top 10 of the latest BlogPoll Top 25, ahead of their weekend clash in Tallahassee.

The newest edition of the BlogPoll Top 25 is out, and the two top teams in Florida, the Florida Gators and Florida St. Seminoles, are both in the top ten ahead of their clash this Saturday in Tallahassee. The Gators stayed at 6th after defeating Jacksonville State 23-0 last Saturday, and the Noles actually fell one spot after beating Maryland, an actual conference opponent, 41-14.

Both teams have an outside shot of getting into the national championship discussion, but they would have to win this weekend and hope for some help from the teams ahead of them. The likelihood of that happening for the winner is fairly low, but as we've seen before in college football, crazy things are possible.

Here's the full BlogPoll Top 25 rankings.
