Live from Blogger Bay, it's the newest AP and Coaches Poll rankings! As you would probably expect after a week which featured very few losses by Top 25 teams (the only AP-ranked team to lose was Oregon; Oregon and Northwestern were the only Coaches Poll-ranked teams to lose) and no notable upsets (Oregon and Northwestern lost to other ranked opponents -- Auburn and Stanford, respectively), the new Top 25 rankings are largely unchanged from what they were prior to Week 1.
The AP Poll:
The top-7 in the AP Poll saw no changes at all from the preseason poll; the first change came at #8, where Florida fell three spots after its less-than-impressive win over Miami in Week 0 action. Notre Dame moved into the spot vacated by the Gators. The biggest riser in the AP Poll was Auburn, whose dramatic (to put it mildly) win over Oregon moved them up six spots, from #16 to #10. The only other teams to rise more than a spot were Wisconsin, who rose two spots to #17 after waxing South Florida, and Stanford, who jumped two spots to #23 after winning a rock fight over Northwestern.
The biggest faller in the AP Poll was, unsurprisingly, Oregon, who dropped from #11 to #16 after their narrow loss to Auburn. As noted, Florida fell three spots after their ugly win over Miami in Week 0. The only other notable team to tumble down the rankings was Iowa State, whose narrow 3OT win over UNI dropped them from #21 to a tie for #25 with Nebraska. The dream of both Iowa and Iowa State being ranked for the Cy-Hawk game is hanging by a thread at this point, especially since Iowa State has a bye in Week 2 and won't be able to do anything to impress pollsters.
As for Iowa, they held steady at #20 in the AP Poll, which is the same spot they were ranked in the preseason poll. That seems fair after the workmanlike win Iowa recorded over Miami (OH) on Saturday.
The Coaches Poll:
Like the AP Poll, there was very little change to be found in the Coaches Poll. The Top-7 is the same as it was in the preseason rankings. Florida got dinged for their ugly win over Miami by the Coaches as well, although they only dropped two spots, from #8 to #10. Oregon was again the big dropper, going from #13 to #18. Auburn was the biggest mover in a positive sense, going up three spots from #16 to #13.
Iowa State (previously #24) fell out of the poll altogether after their narrow escape against UNI while Northwestern (previously #25) also fell out of the rankings after their loss to Stanford. They were replaced by Boise State (#24) and Nebraska (#25).
The Hawkeyes held down the same spot (#20) that they had in the preseason rankings, just like they did in the AP Poll.
Will Week 2 bring more upsets? That's the only thing that's going to shake things up in the AP or Coaches Poll rankings at this point.
