Although the Sooners hold firm at No. 3. they lose a first place vote

With the release of the Coaches' Poll, it becomes apparent that the SEC is making a move toward the top. Texas A&M did enough on the field to impress coaches nation wide as they move from 20th in the preseason to 13th now. On the other side of things, their opponent, South Carolina, lost the most ground as they slipped from 9th to 21st.
