Call your friends, Clemson dominated Virginia Tech in Week 5.

College football’s Week 5 brought us a lot of excitement including ranked teams like USC and LSU getting upset. The Coaches Poll was released earlier in the day followed by the AP Poll at 2 p.m. Eastern.

As of now, Alabama and Clemson continue to be the class of college football. Clemson put up a dominant performance on the road against a previously undefeated Virginia Tech team. Alabama made short work of Ole Miss, who has had Alabama’s number in recent years.

Virginia Tech dropped seven spots in the Coaches poll after losing at home to Clemson. USC dropped 10 spots after their loss to Washington State. After being unranked in last week’s poll, Notre Dame, UCF and NC State were all newcomers to the Week 6 Coaches Poll. UCF and NC State also sneaked into the end of the AP Poll.

Both polls mark the first release in the month of October as the race to the College Football Playoff begins to heat up. This year’s initial playoff rankings will be released on Halloween night.

The AP and Coaches poll both have the same top four: Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma and Penn State. They begin to differ at No. 5 where the AP has Georgia while the Coaches Poll has Washington.

Here’s a look at the Week 6 Coaches Poll courtesy of USA Today as well as the AP Poll.
