Week 9 of the college football season is in the books, and the AP and Coaches polls have been updated accordingly.

Every week, we take a look at the Coaches Poll and examine which teams are a bit overhyped. The list changes weekly, though some teams have found themselves on here for multiple weeks.

If you see your team mentioned below, don't get mad. There's always time to prove us wrong.

With that being said, here are the three “most overrated” teams in the latest Coaches Poll.

Note, we listed the three teams in the order they were ranked in the poll, not necessarily by which we think is most overrated:

No. 11 Baylor

There might not be a bigger surprise in college football than Matt Rhule's Bears. Baylor is 7-0 and very firmly in the hunt for the Big 12 title. However, we think a ranking closer to 14 or 15 would be more reflective of how good the team actually is. November will be a major test for Baylor, as the Bears play TCU, Texas and Oklahoma.

No. 13 Minnesota

P.J. Fleck's team is 8-0 and that is a tremendous accomplishment at Minnesota. The Golden Gophers have beaten everyone they've faced thus far, but the road is about to get much rockier. A loss to Penn State should be coming up on November 9 and Minnesota also has to travel to Iowa and host Wisconsin. Record-wise, the Golden Gophers are probably where they should be but we think teams behind them like Michigan and Wisconsin are better.

No. 24 Texas

Simply put, the Longhorns are overrated because they are rated here at all. This team should not be ranked right now. Three losses--albeit two coming against LSU and Oklahoma--and a couple of other unimpressive performances should be enough to knock UT out of the top 25. The heat is on Tom Herman to finish this season strong against mostly tough competition: Iowa State, Kansas State,, Baylor and Texas Tech.
