An upset of the Oregon Ducks on Thursday night will get the Sun Devils the national respect they're fighting for.
The recently released SB Nation BlogPoll didn't have any change in the top two spots as the Alabama Crimson Tide and Oregon Ducks stay in their relative spots at No. 1 and No. 2 in college football.
But the rest of the poll had plenty of movement.
Though the Crimson Tide received 62 first-place votes, the Ducks received three and the Florida Gators (5), Kansas St. Wildcasts (1), Notre Dame Fighting Irish (4) and Ohio St. Buckeyes all received first-place votes.
Rounding out the top five in the rankings were the Gators, Wildcats and Fighting Irish, each team moving up two spots from last week. The biggest drop came from the West Virginia Mountaineers who moved down 13 spots from No. 4 to No. 17 after losing to the team with the biggest jump in the poll, the Texas Tech Red Raiders.
The Arizona St. Sun Devils were among the teams who received votes in the poll but were not among the top 25 after the Sun Devils blew out the Colorado Buffaloes, 51-17, on Thursday night to move to 5-1 overall, 3-0 in the Pac-12. The Sun Devils host the Ducks on Thursday.
