Oklahoma remained in the number one spot and with Miami's loss to Virginia Tech, the Sooners are the unanimous choice for the top spot in both polls. USC moved into the number two slot after a convincing win over previously number six ranked Washington State, which dropped all the way to #13 in the coaches poll, #12 in the AP.
There was quite a bit of juggling in the polls this week as several top-ten teams suffered defeat. Former #2 Miami dropped to #7 in the coaches poll, #6 in the AP. Virginia Tech vaulted to #5 in both polls after their impressive win. Georgia dropped from #4 to #9 in both polls after their 16-13 loss to Florida. Iowa also made it back into the top ten, at #10 in both polls, after its 41-10 win over Illinois. Ohio State squeaked out a win over Penn State and moved up a spot to #6 in the coaches and #7 in the AP poll. That gives the Big Ten three teams in the top-ten, and five in the top 20 this week. Florida State and LSU took over the #3 and #4 positions, respectively, in both polls.
Michigan has a bye week before taking on Northwestern in Evanston. The following week is the 100th match-up of the Wolverines and the Buckeyes of Ohio State, which could determine the Big Ten representative in the Rose Bowl. If Michigan wins out they will get the Big Ten's automatic berth in Pasadena.
