The latest Coaches Poll after the start of SEC action shaved a couple first-place votes off of the No. 1 Tigers.

Alabama, which ranks No. 2 this week, picked up three top votes for four total, and Ohio State maintained its two No. 1 votes but was added to more ballots this week for a move up to No. 6 from No. 10.

The new top-5 is Clemson (1194), Alabama (1144), Florida (1038), Georgia (1006) and Notre Dame (971).

Oklahoma dropped to No 16 and LSU to No. 17 after being upset this weekend.

A week after the Big Ten was added to the rankings, the Pac-12, which hasn't released its new schedule, did not feature in the new rankings.

Miami rolled over in-state rival Florida State and jumped six spots to No. 8. They play next at Clemson on Oct. 10.

The rest of the ACC reps are UNC (11), Virginia Tech (22) and Pittsburgh (25).
