College Football Top 25 Coaches Poll and ESPN Power Rankings Updated

A big week of college football left some big shakeups in the latest Top 25 Coaches Poll.

The Florida Gators and Texas A&M Aggies both suffered their first losses of the year, and neither is in the top 11 after they entered Week 7 as the No. 10 and 11 teams respectively.

The LSU Tigers continued their climb up the polls after edging those Gators at home Saturday night. LSU opened the year in the 14-16 range in most polls, but have now climbed into the top six of every major poll.

No team has made a bigger climb up the polls though than the Utah Utes. After opening the year as a fringe top-25 team, the Utes are now sitting in the top five of nearly every major poll.

With all that said, here is the fully-updated Top 25 Coaches Poll:
