With favorites prevailing around the country, it was not difficult to predict a largely stagnant set of rankings come Sunday after week four.
And though not much changed, after a key victory over Auburn garnered a lot of national attention on a less than stellar weekend of matchups, LSU made the biggest move of the Coaches’ Poll week by leaping up a spot to No. 6. The Tigers jump Louisville, who suffer again from a weaker opponent (on which the Cardinals layed more than 70 points).
Elsewhere, Alabama lost two points, and two first-place votes, to Oregon, but remain well ahead of the Ducks.
