Ohio State Remains No. 1 In Coaches' Poll, Two Big Ten Teams Make Big Jumps

Coaches poll for teams 3 through 6.

For a while on Saturday, it seemed like the top of the college football polls would be obliterated.

But TCU rallied to defeat Kansas State, Michigan State survived against Rutgers, Florida State held off Miami, Utah outlasted Cal and Alabama wore down Arkansas. Because of those results, the status quo largely remained in the top 10. Only Oklahoma, which fell to rival Texas, kept the top 10 from having an undefeated weekend.

There weren't many changes in this week's coaches poll. Texas A&M replaced Oklahoma in the top 10, and Michigan and Iowa made big jumps. Ohio State stayed at No. 1, though there was some shuffling behind them in the 2-4 spots.
