The USA Today Coach’s poll has been released and it is similar, yet different to the AP Poll. Florida State got all of the first place votes in the USA Today poll, the Auburn Tigers got for in the AP Poll.
Ohio State dropped from second to sixth following their Big Ten Championship loss to the Michigan State Spartans. Auburn moved into second following their SEC Championship win over the Missouri Tigers.
Michigan State leaped up to No. 4 in the table after knocking off Ohio State. The Oklahoma Sooners moved up No. 10 after beating the Oklahoma State Cowboys in their Bedlam rivalry game. Like the AP Poll, the Texas Longhorns dropped from the rankings following the loss to the Baylor Bears.
