College football Coaches Poll, Week 10: Kansas State, Notre Dame move up

Matt Cashore-US PRESSWIRE

Big victories by Kansas State and Notre Dame and a loss by Florida created some shuffling among the top 5 teams in the country.

Four of the top five teams in the USA Today Coaches Poll remained the same in Sunday's latest edition, but there was some shuffling after the Kansas St. Wildcats and Notre Dame Fighting Irish won and the Florida Gators lost.

The Wildcats were ranked No. 4 last week and moved to No. 3 with a dominating 55-24 victory over the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The case was the same for the Fighting Irish, who defeated the Oklahoma Sooners, 30-13, on the road and jumped up to No. 4 after being No. 5 last week. The Alabama Crimson Tide (No. 1), Oregon Ducks (No. 2) and LSU Tigers (No. 5) rounded out the top 5.

Both Kansas State and Notre Dame benefited from Florida's 17-9 loss to the Georgia Bulldogs, as the Gators fell all the way to No. 8 after being ranked third last week. The Bulldogs moved from 11th to sixth after the big home win. The Florida St. Seminoles climbed to No. 7 while the Clemson Tigers (No. 9) and Louisville Cardinals (No. 10) polished off the top 10.

Three previous unranked teams, Louisiana Tech, Nebraska Cornhuskers and Oklahoma St. Cowboys, moved into the top 25, while Ohio Bobcats, Wisconsin Badgers and Michigan Wolverines all dropped out of the top 25.
