Here’s Your Brand New Coaches’ Poll, Which Looks Nothing Like Last Week's

Last week, Alabama jumped Florida State for the No. 1 spot in the Coaches' Poll following a less-than-inspiring performance by the Seminoles against NC State. This week, FSU is back in the top slot after the Crimson Tide were bounced by Ole Miss in Oxford. And after one of the most unpredictable Saturdays in recent memory, there are a number of other changes in this week's poll.

Five of the top 10 ranked teams in last week's poll - Alabama, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas A&M and UCLA - lost this week. So how did things shake out? Well, Auburn moved up to No. 2 - meaning that the top two ranked teams, at the moment, played in last year's national championship game. Baylor, after handling Texas, jumped up to No. 3. Ole Miss, Notre Dame and Mississippi State, all of which posted huge wins yesterday, come in at 4-5-6. 

TCU, which was ranked No. 25 last week, now sits at No. 12 after a big win over Oklahoma. Georgia Tech, Missouri and Clemson have also entered the rankings. Here's the entire list, via USA Today.
