The USA Today coaches poll is one third of the BCS rankings formula, and college football's reigning kings, LSU and Alabama, top the Week 10 coaches poll. That, of course, is a good sign that both SEC schools will be just fine when the BCS standings are released Sunday night.
The Tigers and Crimson Tide remain first and second, respectively, in the coaches poll, and receive the same number of first-place votes as they did in Week 9. It's everywhere else that things shift after a more chaotic Week 9 than most expected.
Losses by previously undefeated Clemson and Kansas State knocked those two teams out of the top 10 and top 15, respectively: Clemson dropped from No. 6 to No. 12, and Kansas State fell from No. 12 to No. 19. Michigan State, ranked 10th last week, slid to No. 16 after losing to Nebraska, who moves to No. 9.
Further from the top, Georgia Tech and Texas used big Week 9 victories to move back into the top 25 after short absences.
