The new USA Today Coaches Poll was released on Sunday, and following an eventful weekend in college football, there were shakeups in the top 10. 
Most notably, Oklahoma and Michigan fell out of the top 10 following their losses Saturday to Iowa State and Michigan State, respectively. The Sooners dropped nine spots to No. 12, while the Wolverines fell from No. 7 to No. 16. The Spartans entered the top 25 at No. 22. Navy and Stanford also entered the top 25 with Louisville, Florida and West Virginia dropping out. Alabama and Clemson remain the top two teams with first-place votes. 
The newest AP Top 25 was released Sunday afternoon. Similar to the coaches poll, there were sizable movements in the top 10 thanks to a pair of upsets. 
Michigan is no longer in the top 10 after falling to Michigan State 14-10. The Wolverines fell 10 spots, in fact, from No. 7 to No. 17. Oklahoma also dropped from No. 3 to No. 12 followings its loss to Iowa State. Moving into the Sooners' old spot is Penn State after cruising against Northwestern. The Nittany Lions remain the Big Ten's highest-ranked team in the AP poll. 
Washington State, fresh off a comfortable win against Oregon, entered the top 10 for the first time this season at No. 8. The Cougars are the second-highest ranked Pac-12 team behind Washington, who rounds out the top five. Alabama and Clemson continue to hold down the top two spots and garner all the first-place votes. 
Thought Alabama is one of three SEC teams to be ranked, all of which are in the top 10, the AAC showed up in a big way in the latest poll. South Florida, UCF and Navy are now all in the Top 25. Though the AP Top 25 is not used in the College Football Playoff Rankings, it reflects the contenders for the Group of Five New Year's Six bowl slot.
