Here's your Week 9 AP Top 25 and the Amway Coaches Poll. Ohio State remains on top with Baylor at No. 2, although they have their own problems with their starting quarterback out for the remainder of the season. TCU, Clemson, LSU, Michigan, Alabama, Stanford and Notre Dame round out the top 9 in both polls.
In the AP Top 25, the big movers were Utah, dropping 10 spots after a loss to USC, and Florida State dropped 8 spots following their own loss. Both teams, obviously, also fell in the Coaches Poll, dropping to 14 and 15, respectively.
Our AAC twist is still centered around the undefeated teams from the conference. Memphis is No. 16 in both polls while Houston is ranked 18th in the AP Top 25 and No. 19 in the Coaches Poll. Temple is No. 21 in the AP Poll and No. 22 in the Coaches. Temple has a huge game with Notre Dame this coming weekend and most aren't giving the Owls much of a chance at this point. All three of these teams have the potential to really mess with the College Football playoff rankings as long as they keep winning (duh). BYU has 18 votes in the AP Poll and 11 in the Coaches Poll. Navy isn't on Cincinnati's schedule, but still represents the AAC well with 15 votes in the Coaches Poll.
