Coaches Poll top 25: LSU up to No. 3, Big Ten makes big move in college football rankings

The new Coaches Poll was released Sunday morning, and to the surprise of nobody, LSU moved up following its 42-28 win over Florida. Also moving up this week was Wisconsin, which is now flirting with the top five after a 38-0 dismantling of Michigan State. The Tigers climbed over Ohio State and Oklahoma to reach No. 3. They replace Georgia, which fell from No. 3 to No. 10 after an upset loss to South Carolina 20-17 in double-overtime.

Overall, the SEC and Big Ten are still dominating the top of the polls. The two conferences now account for seven of the top 10 spots.
