Florida State moves to No. 1 in both AP and coaches polls

Dr. Saturday

Florida State is the new No. 1 team in the AP and coaches polls.

The Seminoles' comeback win over Miami Saturday night kept FSU undefeated, and coupled with Mississippi State's loss to Alabama, the Seminoles moved up from No. 2.

Florida State is the only undefeated Power Five conference team in the country. However, there's a good chance its 10-0 record won't be good enough for the top spot in the College Football Playoff rankings. Last week, Florida State fell to No. 3 behind MSU and Oregon. With Oregon off on Saturday and Alabama's win over MSU, it's doubtful the Seminoles will make the jump to No. 1.

MSU fell to No. 4 in both polls while Alabama jumped to No. 2 from No. 3 in the coaches poll and No. 4 in the AP poll. Oregon is No. 3.

TCU, which survived an upset scare against Kansas, is No. 5. Baylor, the team that beat TCU, is No. 6, while Ohio State is No. 7 in both polls. The only disparity in the top 10 between the two polls is a flip-flop of Georgia and Michigan State at Nos. 9 and 10.

The complete polls are below with each team's rank last week and the number of first place votes it received.
