Poll Report: Two Conferences Dominate

Eight of the top ten teams in this week's polls are from two conferences: the Big 12 and the SEC. The Longhorns are among them, as Texas stayed at No. 7 in each poll.

USC and Wisconsin are the only teams in the top ten this week who aren't from either the Big 12 or the SEC. Four teams from the Big 12 (Oklahoma, Missouri, Texas, Texas Tech) and four teams from the SEC (Georgia, Florida, LSU, Alabama) hold serve at the top of the AP and Coaches polls this week.

For the first time since the start of the season there's a disagreement between the the two polls in the top five. The top four are the same, with USC, Oklahoma, Georgia and Florida holding those spots in that order. Over in the AP, the Missouri Tigers are at No. 5 while the LSU Tigers are No. 5 in the Coaches.

There's one other Big 12 team in the Top 25, with the Kansas Jayhawks at No. 18 in each, giving the Big 12 five teams in this week's polls.
