New, 4 comments

No surprises at the top of the Week 11 USA TODAY Coaches Poll Top 25 as Alabama, Oregon, Florida State, Ohio State, and Baylor continue to lead the country in the top five spots. The Seminoles received three first-place votes after wrecking Miami 41-14, sending the Hurricanes down to 14th in the top 25.

The Buckeyes stay the course at fourth, in the poll that determines 1/3 of the BCS standings, behind the Crimson Tide, the Ducks, and the Seminoles. Ohio State is hoping for two of the teams to fall at some point between now and the bowl games so that they could potentially reach the BCS National Championship game, if Ohio State can win out.

Also representing the Big Ten is Michigan State, who checks in at 19th after a through beating of in-state rival Michigan, who dropped out of the top 25. The Wisconsin Badgers are the third and final Big Ten team, at 22nd, continuing to win games following their loss to Ohio State.
