Going Polling: FSU 7th in Harris, Coaches', 9th in AP Poll


The polls are out after a busy Saturday of college football and Florida State has climbed a bit in all of them. The Seminoles now sit 7th in the coaches poll (up from 10th), 7th in the Harris poll (up from 10th) and 9th in the AP poll (up from 11). The BCS only considers the Harris and the Coaches' poll.

Ahead of Florida State, Oregon State, Oklahoma, USC and Florida all lost. That opened the door for the Seminoles to jump up in all three polls.

In the coaches' poll, Florida State now sit a spot ahead of the Florida Gators who come in at 8th, Georgia jumped FSU to 6th. The coaches' poll features Alabama, Oregon, Kansas State, Notre Dame and LSU in its top 5. Clemson is now ranked 9th, no other ACC school received votes. 

The AP poll has the same top five, with Bama, Oregon, K-State, Notre Dame and LSU bringing up the rear. Florida State jumped up two spots, and sits behind UF (8) and ahead of Clemson (10). No other ACC schools (aside from FSU and Clemson) received any AP votes either. 

And in the final poll released before the BCS rankings come out tonight, FSU is up three spots to 7th in the Harris poll. The Harris interactive poll features the same top five as the other two, and has Georgia at sixth (jumping the Seminoles), FSU at 7th, UF at 8th and Clemson 9th. Once again, no other ACC schools received consideration...

I'll be back with an update as soon as the BCS comes out...
