Florida State Moves Up to 10th in Coaches Poll, Stays 12th in AP Poll


It wasn't a big jump, but Florida State moved up a spot and is back in the top ten in the Coaches poll. FSU got back on track last night after being upset in Raleigh by NC State 8 days ago. A 51-7 demolition of Boston College, coupled with a loss by West Virginia was enough to pop the 'Noles back up to 10th.

West Virginia fell from 4th to 15th after losing big to Texas Tech. South Carolina also lost ahead of Florida State but only dropped to 8th, down five spots from 3rd.

The only other ranked ACC school is Clemson, currently at 13th. 

The top five currently consists of Alabama, Oregon, Kansas State, Florida and Notre Dame. 

Meanwhile in the AP poll the Seminoles remained at 12 while Oklahoma jumped them. The Sooners beat Texas this weekend, and their lone loss to Kansas State continues to look better and better. The Wildcats of K-State are 4th in the AP and 3rd in the coaches.

The Associated Press top five is Alabama, Oregon, Florida, Kansas State and Notre Dame. Clemson is the only other ranked ACC team in the AP as well, currently residing at 14, up to spots from the week before. Beyond that no ACC team even received votes.

I'll be back tonight when they release the first BCS rankings of the year.
