Florida is unbeaten and ranked No. 6 in the coaches' poll.
Will Muschamp's Florida Gators are the No. 6 team in the coaches' poll, while the West Virginia Mountaineers are ranked No. 5 in the AP poll.
The Kansas State Wildcats cracked the Top Five in this week's coaches' poll, but fell one spot short in the AP poll. The Wildcats blew out the Kansas Jayhawks with ease over the weekend and likely got the nod over the Notre Dame Fighting Irish because of their road victory over the Oklahoma Sooners two weeks ago.
Speaking of Notre Dame, fans are celebrating in South Bend, as the Fighting Irish ran all over the Miami (Fla.) Hurricanes at Soldier Field to move up three spots in the coaches' poll and two places in the AP poll. Notre Dame is ranked No. 7 in both polls.
Rounding out the Top 10 had to be difficult for this week's voters, as the final three spots are radically different in both polls.
LSU slipped five spots to No. 8 in the minds of the coaches, but the undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes are ranked No. 8 in the AP poll. To be fair, though, the Buckeyes would probably be ranked eighth in the coaches' poll if they were eligible.
The Tigers are ranked right behind the Buckeyes in the AP poll, while the USC Trojans vaulted back into the Top 10 this week at No. 9 in the coaches' poll. USC only moved up two places to No. 11 in the AP poll.
Oklahoma rounds out the coaches' Top 10, but the 4-0 Oregon State Beavers rightfully occupy the No. 10 position in the AP poll. Additionally, the Sooners moved up from No. 17 to No. 13 in this week's AP rankings.
It's understandable that the coaches would rank the Beavers behind Oklahoma and three other marquee schools with a loss because Oregon State has not exactly been impressive from the perspective of the eye test.
However, the Beavers have won all of their games, two of which were against ranked opponents, and have earned the No. 10 ranking based on their unblemished record.
