Going Polling: Florida State Holds at 6 in Harris, Coaches, 10th in AP


Polls are out and the two polls of note have Florida State exactly the same, holding steady at six. Meanwhile in the AP poll the 'Noles dropped two spots to 10th.

I mentioned right after the NC State loss that the Seminoles' ceiling would be about five or six in the BCS and I expect that trend to continue with Florida State hanging around the back half of the top ten of the BCS and all three major polls.

Alabama losing was actually a negative impact on the Seminoles who saw Texas A&M jump them after knocking off the Crimson Tide, while Bama stayed well ahead. The AP top 5 featured Oregon, K-State, Notre Dame, Bama and Georgia.

In the Coaches' poll, Florida State was behind Oregon, K-State, Notre Dame, Georgia and Bama, and a spot ahead of Clemson. The Harris was the same with Georgia and Alabama flipped. 

Clemson is ranked 9th in the Harris and Coaches, 11th in the AP. No other ACC schools are ranked or near ranked or will even remotely help either the Seminoles or the Tigers with the BCS computers. 

I'll be back with a BCS update later tonight...
