New Coaches' Poll Released: Alabama, FSU Remain 1-2, USC Climbs Into Rankings

Here come the Trojans.

Yesterday's slate of college football games, on paper, was supposed to be one of the weaker lineups of the 2013-2014 season. That was, until they were actually played.

Auburn's miracle "hail mary" preserved the Tigers' chances at both an SEC title and a national championship. Michigan's last-second (literally) field goal broke the hearts of Northwestern fans, yet again. And USC's huge upset victory over Stanford knocked the Cardinal from the ranks of the elite. In short, it was yet another amazing college football Saturday.
