Alabama stays firm at No. 1 after its convincing win over LSU, while Florida State jumps Oregon and is the clear number two. The Ducks drop out of the top five after their loss to Stanford, while the Cardinal see their stock rise after their big win.
The first poll to note is the Coaches, which counts toward the BCS.

Baylor is a big riser after its dominating defeat of Oklahoma, but will still find itself on the outside looking in for the national title hunt (as will fellow undefeated team Ohio State) for the time being. The Sooners drop drastically, and LSU sees its stock fall as well after each lost big to title contenders.
Miami drops dramatically after a blowout loss to Virginia Tech, while Notre Dame and Texas Tech fall out of the polls after losses to Pittsburgh and Kansas State, respectively. Making their re-appearance in the Top 25 are the Texas Longhorns — last ranked in Week 2, when they lost 40-21 at BYU as the No. 15 team in the nation. After blowout losses to the Cougars and Ole Miss, Texas has won its first six conference games and finds itself firmly in the Big 12 title discussion.
