In the coaches poll Oregon jumps TCU to take the fourth spot while TCU satays at fifth. While that may be bad in a quick glance, but TCU did gain points in the poll to have more points then last week. I guess Oregon got the votes since they beat a better opponent in Arizona State. However, I am not so sure Arizona State is all much better then SMU. Plus, both games were fairly similar with Oregon and TCU struggling early before pulling away late.
Utah also moves up a spot due to South Carolina losing, also Air Force gains some votes and is fairly close to being in the top 25. I some what think Texas should be ranked even lower since they were boat raced by UCLA and in their two wins they were not dominant but consistently scored in all four quarters to show the perception of a blowout.
I am surprised that Nevada only gets in to the 25th spot, but Wolfpack fans will take it since it has been a long time they have been in the top 25 polls.
