AP Poll & Sagarin Top 25 Polls Announced

The New AP, and Sagarin polls came out today. Craziness ensues into week 2 as the Auburn Tigers cracked the Top 5 in the AP, but barely made the top 10 in the Sagarin. How did the Oklahoma State Cowboys fair?

Florida State remains atop the AP Poll after struggling to beat un-ranked Oklahoma State 37-31. Even though the Cowboys lost the game most fans agreed that the Cowboys sure looked like a Top 25 team. It's difficult to move up the polls following a loss though, but the Cowboys did gain some ground. The Pokes were voted the second best team off the AP list.

Things get really crazy with the Sagarin Poll. Oklahoma State started the season 5th, and while that seemed crazy going in, after the way the Pokes performed in Arlington, maybe it wasn't too far off. Jeff Sagarin's rating system wasn't impressed though, and the Cowboys dropped like a rock to #23 in the poll.

I went ahead and included the Amway Coaches Poll in the table as well so you can see them all side by side.
