Here we start to see some separation, as the Coaches Poll tends to give a little more credit to the one-loss teams, while the AP remains SEC-lean.
In the Coaches, you'll find, in order from 15 on down: South Carolina, Miami, Texas A&M, LSU and Oklahoma State.
The AP looks like this: Oklahoma State, Miami, South Carolina, Oklahoma and Texas A&M.
The biggest difference between the two, as mentioned, is that the AP doesn't seem to take losses as seriously as the Coaches Poll, thus teams like Texas A&M, South Carolina and LSU (which is at No. 10) being ranked ahead of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Miami.
But which one is right?
Well, there is no "right answer," but the Coaches seem to have things together in this grouping, because Oklahoma State now has a quality win to go along with just one loss. LSU, meanwhile, is given a lot of credit in the Coaches and yet, it has losses to unranked Georgia and unranked Ole Miss.
The SEC teams here may continue to beat up on each other, with LSU and Texas A&M squaring off on Nov. 23rd, but the same could happen in the Big 12, because Oklahoma and Oklahoma State meet on Dec. 7th.
As for Miami, the schedule is pretty easy until the ACC Championship game, but you have to wonder if voters will hesitate to move the Hurricanes back up given the performance against Florida State.
