The Florida State Seminoles and Clemson Tigers are ranked in the top 10 in this week's BlogPoll.

Coming off big wins in Week 9, the Florida State Seminoles and Clemson Tigers cracked the top 10 in this week's SB Nation BlogPoll Top 25.

Florida State cruised past Duke, 48-7, at Doak Campbell Stadium in Tallahassee, Fla., on Saturday. In a prime time Thursday night meeting, Clemson blew out Wake Forest, 42-13, at Winston-Salem, N.C.

With a 55-24 victory over Texas Tech, Kansas State moved up to No. 2. Florida, last week's second-ranked team, fell to No. 7 after a 17-9 defeat at the hands of the Georgia Bulldogs.
