The Polls are out! Normally this is a Sunday feature, but with games stretching over to last night, they delayed until today.
So what's of note? Well, there are a record number of SEC teams in the polls. The entirety of the SEC West is in one of them. That's pretty impressive, right there. Alabama is still the highest ranked SEC team in both polls, and Auburn is still the second highest. Auburn didn't move up or down following Saturday's game against Louisville.
|1||Ohio State (61)||Ohio State (63)|
|11||Florida State||Notre Dame|
|16||Texas A&M||Georgia Tech|
The only ranked teams on Auburn's schedule are in the SEC. Texas A&M made a huge jump into the polls after their convincing victory over Arizona State. Mississippi State squeaks in to the AP Poll, and they're just outside (26th) the Coaches' Poll. Auburn faces seven teams ranked in the AP Poll and six teams ranked in the Coaches poll. I suspect Louisville will sneak in eventually given the way they played the Tigers this weekend. You also have to take into account that Auburn's opponent this weekend, Jacksonville State, is ranked 6th in the FCS Coaches Poll and 5th in the STATS FCS Top 25. They're no slouch of an FCS Opponent.
