Coaches Poll top 25: ACC teams make huge jumps towards top 15 of college football rankings
The ACC has three top-15 teams, starting with Clemson at No. 2
Iowa State made the biggest jump this week, moving 19 spots up to No. 25 after beating Kansas 27-3 on Saturday. The Cyclones are one of four Big 12 teams in the Coaches Poll this week, joining No. 6 Oklahoma, No. 8 West Virginia and No. 19 Texas. The Longhorns dropped four spots in the rankings after the home loss to the Mountaineers.
The biggest conference winner was the ACC, which now has three top 15-teams thanks to the movement up over the last couple of weeks by Syracuse and Boston College.
