NCAA Football Rankings, Week 5: Oregon Leapfrogs LSU For No. 2 Spot In Coaches' Poll

Just as they did in the Associated Press Top 25, the Oregon Ducks moved past the LSU Tigers in the USA Today Coaches' Poll to No. 2 on the strength of a victory over the previously ranked Arizona Wildcats.

Unlike in the AP Poll, however, the Ducks' margin over the Tigers is slim, as LSU trails Oregon by just 10 points. Both teams continue to chase the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide, which collected all but two of the poll's first-place votes.

LSU's victory over the Auburn Tigers proved a less than impressive result for the coaches, who voted the Tigers down from the No. 2 spot for their 12-10 victory in Jordan Hare Stadium.

Both teams enter the thick of their conference schedules moving forward and could battle for that No. 2 spot for a few weeks to come.

The No. 4 Florida State Seminoles and the No. 5 Georgia Bulldogs round out the poll's top five.
