The Week 4 Coaches' Poll Top 25 Is Out

Sep 16 2017 Louisville KY USA Clemson Tigers quarterback Kelly Bryant runs the ball for a touchdown against the Louisville Cardinals during the second half at Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. Clemson defeated Louisville 47-21

The Bulldogs are #17 in the AP poll and #19 in the Coaches' poll.

Week 3 helped make up for that dearth of surprises.

Oklahoma State's continued offensive dominance helped the Cowboys jump three places while the Sooners dropped a spot in The Associated Press Top 25 poll.

Not at the top, however.

A 47-21 win against defending Heisman Trophy victor Lamar Jackson and Louisville Cardinals vaulted the Tigers into the No. 2 spot in the poll, trailing only the top-ranked Alabama Crimson Tide.

What did voters get right and what decisions will leave you scratching your head?

New kids on the block: No. 19 Mississippi State, No. 24 Oregon, No. 25 San Diego State.

The defending national champion Tigers (3-0, 1-0 ACC) entered the weekend at No. 3 in both national polls, but could eat into Alabama's first-place votes after Saturday.

Oklahoma State moved up to sixth from ninth after its 59-21 demolition of Pittsburgh.

Florida moves up to No. 20 after defeating Tennessee and USF moves up to No. 21 after beating IL. TCU rose four spots to No. 16 after rallying for a 56-36 win over SMU. LSU barely hung on to the final spot in the rankings after an embarrassing home blowout.

Ohio State still has the best chances of any Big Ten team, despite a Week 2 loss to Oklahoma.

Florida State earned the highest rank of the four, coming in at number 12, down one spot from a week ago.
