College football rankings: Florida State, Auburn, Baylor lead Coaches Poll, AP Top 25

Meanwhile, our Wisconsin Badgers are out of the Coaches Poll and AP Top 25.

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

Update, 2:07 p.m.: As expected, the Badgers have fallen out of the AP Top 25 as well. The full poll, alongside the Coaches and Sagarin Rankings, are below.


Florida State, Auburn and Baylor lead this week's Coaches Poll, released Sunday. The Wisconsin Badgers drop out of the poll altogether after their loss to Northwestern on Saturday.

It comes as no surprise that the Badgers are out of the poll now. The AP Top 25, which will be released later this afternoon, will probably bear the same results. Wisconsin was pitiful on offense outside of Melvin Gordon, who ran 27 times for 259 yards and a touchdown. Gordon broke loose several times, but outside of him, the Badgers' essentially had zero options. Tanner McEvoy (4-of-10 for 24 yards and one interception) was so bad as a passer that he was pulled in the second quarter in favor of Joel Stave, who had been inactive for all of September after struggling with "the yips." Stave wasn't much better, ending 8-of-19 for 114 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions.

Throughout college football, the weekend was the wildest yet. Eleven top-25 teams lost, including five of the top 10. Below are the Coaches Poll and Sagarin Rankings*. We'll round up the rest of the pols throughout the day right here.
