The new AMWAY Coaches' Poll has been released after the second week of college football play.

Others Receiving Votes
Louisville 128; Brigham Young 124; Florida 107; Mississippi State 84; Oklahoma State 81; Duke 55; Washington 22; TCU 19; Minnesota 17; Marshall 14; Iowa 9; Cincinnati 8; Arizona 7; Oregon State 6; West Virginia 6; Pittsburgh 5; Northern Illinois 5; Rutgers 4; Memphis 4; Michigan 2; Boise State 1; Texas Tech 1.

As you can see, the Bulldogs are not far from the top-25, but they still have some work to do to crack the list.

Florida State still has a stranglehold on the top spot, but several other teams are getting first place love as well.  The SEC West has four teams in the top ten: Alabama (2), Auburn (5), Texas A&M (8), and LSU (9).  Ole Miss stands at No. 15, so as of right now, the Bulldogs have five top-15 opponents on their schedule.

In the world of the bizarre, how does Ohio State end up ahead of the Virginia Tech team that just defeated them?
