2012 NCAA Football Rankings: Penn State unranked, but receiving BlogPoll votes

The Nittany Lions' season has come to a close and, at 8-4, they are slotted in the "others receiving votes" category of the Week 13 BlogPoll.

The Week 13 BlogPoll is out at SB Nation, and while Bill O'Brien may have earned Big Ten Coach of the Year honors, his Nittany Lions are still slotted in the "others receiving votes" category.

With Penn State's season over, it's unlikely the team cracks into the top 25, but teams in the bottom tier, particularly in the Big 12, could tumble and open up a spot for PSU.

The undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes carry the banner for the conference, coming in at No. 6 to end their season. Like their Leaders Division companion, the Buckeyes are also ineligible for postseason play. Nebraska, Northwestern, and Michigan round out the Big Ten representation this week. The Huskers have one remaining game this month, as they'll face Wisconsin this weekend in the conference title game at Lucas Oil Stadium. Here's the complete Week 13 BlogPoll:
