Coaches Poll Top 25: Week 8 College Football Rankings

Week 7 of the 2018 college football season is in the books, so it is time to take a look at the new Amway Coaches Poll.Β The Coaches Poll, which is not part of the College Football Playoff selection committee’s formula to determine the four teams that will compete for the College Football Playoff National Championship, is voted on by 65 FBS head coaches.

There were a number of upsets throughout the weekend, with a whopping four teams in the top ten suffering defeat and a total of 8 teams inside of the Top 25 falling.

Because of that, we can expect plenty of shakeups in this week’s Coaches Poll.

Did your favorite team make the top 25 rankings for Week 8?
