The Bleacher Creature College Football Poll, Week Six: The Tide Is High

Kristofer GreenSenior Writer IOctober 7, 2009

The first edition of the 2009 Bleacher Creature College Football Poll offers some twists on the recognized college football polls.

Like the AP, Coaches, and Harris Interactive polls, the top three teams in the country are clearly out in front of the rest of the pack. Florida, Texas, and Alabama all received first place votes and are the only teams to break the 900 point mark in this week's poll.

The Bleacher Creature poll, in it's second season, purposefully waits until after the fifth week of the season to begin polling in order to better evaluate on-field results rather than preseason notions.

Though, there will always be some forshadowing involved in ranking teams, it is the duty of every pollster to vote on where they believe each team should be ranked at this moment and to vote without an agenda or bias that would blind objectivity.

The conference breakdown for week six are as follows: Big XII 6, SEC 5, Big Ten 4, ACC 3, Big East 2, Mountain West 2, Pac-10 2, WAC 1
