The media has a very eclectic mix of teams in its back five, while the coaches were a little more straightforward.
From No. 21 to No. 25, the AP poll has two new additions, two teams that fell back and one team that moved up slightly from last week. The coaches picked three new additions at the back and slid Texas Tech and Fresno State up.
The only constants between the polls are Fresno State and Arizona State. Both rankings gave the Bulldogs a two-spot jump after they held off Hawaii 42-37 on the road. Meanwhile, ASU was given a nod in each after downing USC and sparking the firing of Lane Kiffin. The Sun Devils' only loss came the week prior to No. 5 Stanford.
The coaches dropped Mississippi, Notre Dame and Wisconsin all out after losses, despite the fact that each lost to a ranked team. The media had more mercy on Ole Miss after losing to No. 1 Alabama, keeping the Rebels in at No. 24.
The media's second new addition is Maryland at No. 25. The Terrapins' signature win over West Virginia saw a boost last week, as the Mountaineers upset then-No. 11 Oklahoma State. That loss dropped OSU to No. 21 in the AP poll and No. 20 in the coaches poll.
Nebraska re-entered the Top 25 along with Northern Illinois as two of coaches' new additions. The Huskers were idle last week, while NIU stomped Purdue for its second win over a Big Ten team this season.
The Huskies could be poised to run the table and make another BCS bowl run.
