With all the games ranked in the rankings on the Week 7 college football roster, there were bound to be a lot of changes in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA coach poll. Indeed, this is the case, with four of the top ten teams losing their first game, including the formerly ranked Alabama.
Georgia is back on top after a fun run over Vanderbilt. The Bulldogs has 43 out of 63 votes in first place this week and leads the poll with 39 total points. Ohio, which was on the weekend, moved into second place with the first-place vote total increasing to 17.
Michigan climbs to No. 3 after dealing with a then-no. 10 Pennsylvania. The Wolverines had one #1 vote and earned Tennessee three points for third place. Vols jumped four places to No. 4 after taking down the Crimson Tide but got a pair of nods for first place. Clemson, the Florida State winner, is steady at number five.

Kansas and Baylor faltered after the loss, reducing the representation of the Big 12 in the poll by two.
