With an uneventful first week of college football—no major upsets to highly ranked teams, unless Louisville or Virginia Tech lose on Sunday or Monday—the new Associated Press and USA Today coaches' polls should not be different from what they looked like in the preseason.
However, there were a few teams that took on a higher ranked team Week 1 and failed to shoot up the polls with an upset. So, for those teams, their slide down in the new polls will not crush their chances at playing in a BCS bowl game. Luckily, there are still three months left of football for them to climb their way back up.
But for one team, their Week 1 victory will place them in a very familiar spot in the new polls: a spot they should have started the season at after the way they finished the 2011 season.
