College Football Rankings, Week 9: Oregon Ducks, Boise State Broncos, Auburn Tigers Top Coaches' Poll

The USA Today Coaches' Poll isn't quite as impressed with Auburn as some of us are, but the SEC's best has at least moved into the top three. It's a shame attrition has been the nation's most accomplished team's only way to move up in recent weeks, but Boise State's weak schedule is going to cause a Bronco tumble sooner or later.

Only two SEC teams remain in the top ten after LSU's loss, with six in the top 25. Three ACC teams have crept in, with Florida State holding steady, Miami inching its way back up, and America forgetting Virginia Tech lost to James Madison. Virginia Tech lost to James Madison! James Madison, America!

Baylor is our newcomer this week, after the Bears lit up Kansas State, 47-42, to go 6-2. Michigan returns, and West Virginia and Texas leave us, the latter likely for good after a loss to Iowa State. Iowa State, America! Iowa State is not much better than James Madison!
