USA Today/Coaches Poll Week 7: Oklahoma Remains #1 After Big Win Over Texas

There wasn't a whole lot of movement this week in the USA Today/Coaches Poll as the Oklahoma Sooners find themselves atop the pile after taking the Red River Rivalry handedly over the Texas Longhorns.

Along with Oklahoma, LSU and Alabama remained in their respective spots in the top three, while Wisconsin leapfrogged the Stanford Cardinal for fourth on this list by having a bye, while Stanford took another Pac-12 team out to the woodshed Saturday in Colorado. Boise State, Oklahoma State and Clemson come in at 6th, 7th, and 8th respectfully, Oregon stayed in ninth, while Michigan returns to the top 10 after moving up a spot in the rankings this week.

History was made in Florida this week as well as Florida and Florida State fell out of the top 25, marking the first time in almost thirty years that Florida, Florida State, and Miami all are outside of the top 25.
