AP: The AP drops another solid fifth of the poll with the 11-15 rankings. South Carolina leads the pack after a tough win against Tennessee that saw star running back Marcus Lattimore fall to a season-ending injury.
Louisville was able to stay undefeated and has steadily climbed the polls, and Oregon State settled at No. 13 after facing the first loss of the season. Oklahoma falls to No. 14 after the loss to Notre Dame and Stanford rounds out the Top 15 selections.
Coaches': The Coaches' Poll hits a bit of a skip with this fifth of the poll. The Gamecocks lead at No. 11 with good reason, but Oklahoma stays high with a No. 12 ranking after losing big to Notre Dame at home. The Sooners are receiving a bit too much respect from the coaches.
Another team that is a surprise Top 15 selection by the coaches' is Boise State. The Broncos have consistently been BCS busters, but after a season-opening loss to Michigan State, Boise has been buried in the bottom of the Top 25.
The schedule has continued to get easier, and a win over Wyoming isn't impressive for the Broncos. This was a bad vote for the coaches.
