Despite Week 2 having no Top 25 matchups, we still got some upsets and close calls from college football. Just goes to show that college football is exciting no matter what the weekly slate is.

The new Amway Coaches Poll is out, and Florida State has officially usurped the No. 2 spot in the nation after Clemson’s ugly win over Troy. Maybe to some surprise, Clemson only dropped the No. 3. They could have easily dropped a little bit further with how bad that game was.

Michigan also jumped into the Top 5. The went over Stanford, who had the week off.

The biggest mover was Arkansas, who leaped to No. 24 in the poll. Louisville also saw a nice gain from No. 15 to No. 10, as it appears people are readily hopping onto the Lamar Jackson hype train.

To some surprise, Tennessee dropped another spot even after a big win over Virginia Tech at Bristol. Georgia also dropped four spots after they almost lost to Nicholls, and Wisconsin moved up four spots for some reason. I guess the voters felt out-done by the AP Poll putting the Badgers at No. 10 last week.

1. Alabama
