With early victories, pollsters are clearly taking a closer look at the teams they preordained to be the 2013 favorites, as Oregon leaps over previous No. 2 Ohio State to take the position directly behind Alabama in this week’s USA Today Coaches’ Poll.

Alabama’s vote share is unchanged, but Oregon climbs closer than Ohio State was last weekend. Explore it for yourself:
