On Sunday afternoon, the USA Today Coaches Poll for Week 3 gave us an idea of the college landscape moving forward.
The top three remain unchaned this week, with Nick Saban’s Alabama Crimson Tide sitting at No. 1 followed by the Clemson Tigers and Oklahoma Sooners. Alabama earned 59 of a possible 65 first-place votes, while the remaining six went to Clemson.
Rounding out the top five is Penn State and USC.
The biggest riser in this week’s poll is Mississippi State. The Bulldogs jumped 11 spots to No. 19 after upsetting LSU. The Tigers, meanwhile, are the biggest fallers on the week dropping 12 spots to No. 23.
