Well, I suppose I'm on the LSU train now. You can force that many turnovers once or twice, and it's a fluke. But LSU just keeps on keepin' on with the turnover creation festival, and it's enough for them to put them in the top slot. You can bet dollars to donuts that they're number one in the overall BlogPoll as well.
Oklahoma struggled mightily for a good long while with Missouri, so Alabama holds pace at number after two blasting Arkansas.
The full poll is after the jump.

After juggling one and three, there's no movement again until we get to Texas A&M's vacated spot at eight. They lost to a really good team, so they slide only 3 spots. Same with Arkansas - their ranking already had this loss sort of baked in. We knew it was coming, so there's no need for a huge drop.
Vanderbilt didn't show the same verve they had in weeks past in Columbia, dropping by 18 to a South Carolina team that alternately looks good and very good. We'll see what happens with them in the near future.
Florida State lost to a similar Clemson team; they may be figuring some things out. That's a tough draw for FSU - an Oklahoma team everyone knows is good followed by a talented Clemson team. We'll be watching them closely.
We close the poll with the Fightin' Zookers of Illinois. I suspect they'll fall back to earth this week... we'll see.
