We investigate some odd dimensional Rimannian submanifolds admitting the almost contact metric structure $(\phi, \xi, \eta, \langle , \rangle)$ of a certain Euclidean sphere from the viewpoint of the weakly $\phi$-invariance of the second fundamental form. The family of such submanifolds contains some homogeneous submanifolds of the ambient sphere. In the latter half of this paper, we caluculate the mean curvature and the length of the derivative of the mean curvature vector of these homogeneous submanifolds.
