College football rankings, Week 9: Little movement at the top

Kevin C. Cox

Alabama is again the unanimous No. 1 team in the Coaches Poll for this week.

The top of the USA Today Coaches Poll remains fairly static, with only Florida and Kansas State swapping places at Nos. 3 and 4. It was the only change among the top seven teams in college football from Week 8 to Week 9.

Upon their loss to Florida, South Carolina fell from No. 8 to 16. West Virginia continues to fall, dropping from No. 15 to No. 22 after their loss to Kansas State. TCU, Arizona State, and Cincinnati dropped out of the poll altogether, making room for Ohio, Texas and Wisconsin at Nos. 23-25 respectively.

The big riser for this week's poll is Michigan, who jumped five spots from No. 25 to No. 20 after a 12-10 victory over archrival Michigan State in Ann Arbor.
