As expected, Oregon’s Thursday night victory over Arizona State is not enough to hold off both Florida and Kansas State from gaining on the Ducks in the latest Coaches’ Poll.
Kansas State actually slips to No. 4, but gains votes across the board. Not much in terms of surprises here, and though Florida’s slight advantage on the Wildcats might be a shock to some, the slight difference (two votes or .002 share) is a negligible difference.
