Every week, SB Nation sites across the college network participate in the BlogPoll Top 25.

Our poll is submitted to the SB Nation ballot box for inclusion in the network-wide SB Nation Top 25.

Looks like our sample of BYU fans think our Cougars are on the cusp of the Top 25. I'm thinking our voters weren't sure what to do with Virginia Tech since the Hokies' game was in progress at the time of submission.

Stay tuned for the full SB Nation Top 25 with votes from sites around the country. It should be released tomorrow.
