It seems like a slow news day today -- everyone talking about the Yankees' struggle to stay alive, the Colorado Rockies, The Tribe, all the college football upsets Saturday, and the big Redskins victory on Sunday -- so we thought it was worth swapping some political polls for some sports polls.  Courtesy of ESPN's Sports Nation and tens of thousands of sports fans.

56% Appalachian St. over Michigan was bigger upset than Stanford over USC.
68% Rooting for Rockies to beat Diamondbacks in NLCS.
84% Dallas will beat Buffalo on Monday Night Football.
