USA Today Coaches’ Poll Week Nine: Notre Dame, Kansas State see big gains

A Florida loss mixed with impressive victories from Kansas State and Notre Dame once again shrunk Oregon’s hold on No. 2, but the Ducks remain 25 points ahead of No. 3 Kansas State this weekend. Notre Dame lands at No. 4 after their victory over Oklahoma, which falls just to No. 12 with the loss.

Georgia climbs to No. 6 in the USA Today Coaches’ Poll on the strength of their upset victory over Florida, but has plenty of work left to do in the coming weeks if they hope to climb into the national title discussion.
