The very first BCS coaches poll was released Sunday and, really to nobody’s surprise, Alabama was at the top. It was surprising seeing Florida listed No. 2, overtaking No. 3 Oregon. Kansas State and Notre Dame in the Top 5. The latest Pregame.com poll had Oregon No. 2 behind the Crimson Tide.
Florida State remained third in the Vegas poll followed by LSU and Oklahoma, the Sooners moving up two spots from last week. Notre Dame was No. 11. Among the unbeatens in the BCS poll, Oregon State was No. 8, Mississippi State 12, Rutgers 15, Louisville 16 and Cincinnati 21.
