The updated college football coaches poll was released on Tuesday. Most of the Top 10 stayed the same except for one newcomer. The SEC traded one team for the other. The Georgia Bulldogs moved into the eighth spot, while South Carolina dropped all the way to No. 21 with their loss to Texas A&M. Georgia also gained a first place vote after leaning heavily on a great Todd Gurley performance.

The Florida State Seminoles are still No.1 after beating Oklahoma State 37-31 in Arlington, TX. Jameis Winston and the Seminoles took a 17-0 lead before fighting off the game Cowboys until the final buzzer. Florida State captured 57 of the first place votes.

The rest of the top five remained the same as well. The Alabama Crimson Tide remained No.2 after they outlasted West Virginia 33-23 in a very entertaining game. Oklahoma had an easy game and remained the No.3 team in the nation. The Sooners received two first place votes, while Oregon earned the final two first place votes. The Ducks have a statement game coming up against Michigan State. Auburn moved into the No.5 spot with a win over Arkansas.

No. 19 Wisconsin, No. 21 South Carolina, and No. 24 Clemson are the only teams to stay in the Coaches poll with a loss. Each team lost to another SEC opponent. The Ohio State Buckeyes and UCLA each dropped after winning. Neither team looked very impressive in wins on the road.
