College Football Polls 2014: Comparing Week 2 AP and Coaches Polls
Rainier Ehrhardt/Associated Press

The Week 2 editions of the Associated Press and Amway Coaches Polls dropped Tuesday afternoon, and despite closer-than-expected games against Oklahoma State and West Virginia, respectively, Florida State and Alabama remained the consensus No. 1 and No. 2 teams in America.

There was plenty of movement behind the top two, however, especially as a result of Texas A&M's 52-28 win at South Carolina. The Aggies started outside the Top 20 of both polls, and the Gamecocks started inside the Top 10 of both polls, but now those spots have largely reversed.

I say "largely," though, because they have not reversed entirely. In one poll, they have; in the other, they have not.
