Texas rises in top five, Utah and LSU tumble in US LBM Coaches Poll after Week 5

Though there were no major upsets in Week 5 in college football, there was still a bit of recalibration resulting in a few changes near the top of the US LBM Coaches Poll.

The No. 1 ranking still belongs to Georgia, though the Bulldogs got a scare from long-time SEC rival Auburn. The two-time defending champion was voted first on 59 of 64 ballots, with the other five No. 1 votes claimed by four other teams. Michigan received one of those following another romp at Nebraska and easily retains the No. 2 position. Ohio State, which had the weekend off, got a pair of firsts and stays put at No. 3.

The shuffling begins at No. 4, where Texas nudges ahead of idle Florida State. The Longhorns also received a single No. 1 nod after taking down previously unbeaten Kansas, as a date with No. 12 Oklahoma looms in the Red River showdown.
