Florida State drops in the Coaches Poll

Florida State drops in the Coaches Poll”

No. 1 Alabama earned all first place votes except for one, which went to #2 Ohio State.

Week 1 of the season was absolutely packed with high-scoring contests and highly competitive non-conference games between numerous AP Top 25 teams, an entertaining byproduct of college football's new merit-based playoff system. The Buckeyes held firm at No. 2 while defending champion Clemson ascended two spots to No. 3 following its 56-3 rout of Kent State. The Sooners' move to No. 5 sets up a top-five matchup for the second straight week when they visit the Buckeyes on Saturday. LSU is 12th in the coaches' poll, followed by Auburn at No. 13, Georgia at No. 15, Tennessee at No. 21 and Florida at No. 25.

Jason Galloway of the Wisconsin State Journal dropped Florida State four spots to seventh on his ballot this week and said the Francois injury was not a factor. Michigan, originally ranked No. 11 in the preseason poll, seeps into the top 10 after a convincing neutral site win over the Florida Gators, who mustered three offensive points against a stout Wolverines defense.

No. 9 Wisconsin and Florida State round out the top 10.

West Virginia slipped out of the rankings after losing a heartbreaker to Virginia Tech to open the season.

The only preseason ranked team to lose in Week 1 to an unranked opponent was Texas, which christened the Tom Herman era in Austin with an ugly 51-41 home setback to Maryland.
