Oklahoma dropped 10 spots in the latest coach poll released Sunday after a 41-34 home loss to Kansas State that left the Sooners as 13.5-point favorites. Despite the improvement to 3:1 through the win, the Wildcats did not make it into the poll after the surprise. The Wildcats weren’t the only Big 12 team to be snubbed by Coaches Poll voters. Kansas was also left out after improving to 4-0 with a 35-27 win over the previously undefeated Duke.
It’s been a better week for the ACC in the rankings, with Florida State entering 22nd for the first time this season after improving to 4-0 in a 44-14 win over Boston College. The Seminoles host No. 21 Wake Forest this week while the Demon Deacons try to recover from a crushing 51-45 overtime loss to No. 5 Clemson on Saturday.
The Tigers will also engage in a major ACC showdown in Week 5 when they host NC State No. 10 after the Wolfpack improve to 4-0 and move up a spot after a 41-10 against UConn. Syracuse also entered the poll at No. 25 after beating Virginia, and Pittsburgh re-entered at No. 24 after beating Rhode Island to give the ACC six ranked teams.
