New College Football Top 25 Coaches Poll

The latest Coaches Top 25 Poll is out!

Week 2 is in the book, and a fresh set of college football top 25 polls are coming out.

First up is the latest Coaches Poll, which remains the same for the most part up top. Alabama, Georgia and Clemson all won Saturday and look like the three best teams in college football right now.

Four top 25 teams ended up losing this week, including Florida, who lost at home to Kentucky for the first time since 1979.

As for the Kentucky Wildcats, they did not crack this top 25 poll, though they were one of the highest vote-getters. If Kentucky takes care of business next week against Murray State and enough teams in that 20-25 range lose, we could see Kentucky crack the top 25 for the first time in the Mark Stoops era.

Also, how on Earth is South Carolina getting more votes than Kentucky?

As for the rest of the SEC, the league has three teams ranked in the top seven and another two in the top 20. Mississippi State continues to rise, and depending on what happens next week, they could crack the top 10 by the time they come to Lexington in Week 4.
