A look at Week 3’s USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll

·3 min read

The arrival of another week of college football means a look at the latest top 25 rankings. The Auburn Tigers had an opportunity to creep into the rankings this week with a win over No. 23 Penn State. Unfortunately, they weren’t even close after the Nittany Lions outscored the Tigers 27-6 in the second half on Saturday.

Last week, the SEC had eight teams in the polls and all of those teams won on Saturday. They should remain in the polls this week. It remains to be seen if there is a ninth team from the conference to join the ranks in the coming weeks.
