The Newest Coaches' Poll Is Out, And It Features A Number Of Changes

Week eight of the college football season has come and gone, but its effects will be felt for quite some time. Florida State's huge victory over Notre Dame, though controversial, could mean that the Seminoles will be afforded an opportunity to play for a national championship for the second year in a row. But it wasn't just FSU that made a statement Saturday - Alabama, Ole Miss, Oregon and Georgia also gave their fans a lot to cheer about.

Kansas State also jumped up three places to No. 11 after knocking off Oklahoma. Arizona State, Utah, USC, LSU and West Virginia also made big moves.
