New Top 25 Polls: Top teams remain unchanged after surviving Week 10 tests

There was no shortage of excitement during a Week 10 in college football that saw all of the top teams' BCS title hopes put to the test. But whether it was a four-overtime slugfest or 113-point shootout, the result was the same -- the top four teams in the country survived.

In Baton Rouge, it was a T.J. Yeldon taking a pass from AJ McCarron 28 yards into the end zone for Alabama's game-winning score in the final minute. In Los Angeles it was Kenjon Barner adding his name to the Heisman conversation with 321 yards rushing and five touchdowns for Oregon. After receiving the best their opponents had to offer, Kansas State and Notre Dame both survived at home.

From the first kickoff of the day through San Diego State's 21-19 upset of Boise State in the final hour of the evening, there were shakeups below the top 5. Three new teams have broken into each poll since last week, including Toledo -- which has taken over for Ohio as the MAC's leader in the polls.

Now the coaches poll will be entered into the BCS formula along with the Harris Interactive Poll and the computer rankings. Check back here at the Eye On College Football after the new BCS standings are released for reaction on all the teams in the top 10.

(The updated BCS standings will be released Sunday evening. Check out Jerry Palm's BCS Projections)
