We have a new Coaches' Poll following the fifth week of the 2018 college football season. The new top 25 poll features quite a bit of changes following what happened over the weekend.

Week 5, of course, was highlighted by what happened at the beginning of the day and what happened at the end of it.

The day started with Clemson pulling off a comeback win against Syracuse. The Tigers were looking dire against the Orange early on, losing Trevor Lawrence to an injury, but they were able to pull it off late.

The day ended with Ohio State rallying from a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter at Penn State. The Buckeyes are now the clear College Football Playoff favorite in the Big Ten.

The new Coaches' Poll reflects everything that went down on Saturday. Here's the full top 25:
