TCU held on to the No. 3 spot in the Coaches Poll after a 45-21 win over Iowa State, a win that saw Trevone Boykin amass 510 yards of offense and five touchdowns. The Frogs received four first place votes from four very generous coaches.
Ohio State held on to the No. 1 spot, receiving 45 first place votes, after a 38-10 win over Penn State, and Baylor held on to the No. 2 spot, receiving 12 first place votes, after drubbing West Virginia 62-38.
Oklahoma State and Oklahoma moved up three and four spots respectively to No. 12 and No. 15. Oklahoma State's move was a product of losses by teams ahead of them, as they were on a bye week, while Oklahoma sent a message to the world, beating Kansas State in Manhattan 55-0.
Memphis and former TCU offensive coordinator Justin Fuente find themselves ranked No. 17 after a 37-24 victory over then-No. 12 Ole Miss. Memphis' AAC friends Houston and Temple also check in in the top 25, at No. 22 and No. 24, respectively.
Here's the full Coaches Poll. We'll update with the AP Poll when it is released later today.
UPDATE: The AP Poll has been released, and TCU drops to No. 4 behind former Mountain West bunkmate Utah. The Utes defeated Arizona State on Saturday thanks to a fourth quarter surge by the offense.
