The Week 8 AP poll makes the right call by giving Florida the nod over Kansas State but fails to reward the underappreciated schools.
Alabama No. 1 and Oregon No. 2 is a given, but after South Carolina lost to LSU, the No. 3 slot was guaranteed to be a big topic of discussion Sunday morning, especially after the USA Today coaches' poll placed Kansas State there.
The writers got it right this time—or at least they got that part right. After correctly placing Florida ahead of Kansas State, the AP poll left out some teams who were thought to have a Top 25 spot locked up.
As a result, these are the biggest winners and losers of the Week 8 AP poll.
