The updated Amway Coaches Poll Top 25 is out following Week 3, and there are several major changes to take a look at.

First and foremost, the Big Ten is back. With the conference announcing last week they intend to begin playing games in late October, Big Ten teams are again eligible to receive Coaches Poll votes.

They will have to wait another week to be considered for the AP Poll, but five Big Ten programs are back among the top 25 in the Coaches Poll. Ohio State checks in at No. 10, with Penn State 13th, Wisconsin 17th, Michigan 19th and Minnesota 22nd.

Elsewhere, Oklahoma and Georgia are tied for third, while Auburn and Texas flip-flopped spots in the top 10. Miami is the biggest riser, moving up four spots after beating Louisville, while Tennessee, Louisiana, Oklahoma State, Memphis and Virginia Tech dropped several notches.

Louisville, Kentucky, Baylor, Army and Appalachian State are no longer ranked at all.
