After another eventful weekend of college football, the AP Top 25 and USA TODAY Coaches polls were revealed on Sunday afternoon.

As always, the SEC had a heavy presence. We start with the coaches poll which had eight teams from the conference featured among the top 25 teams. The Arkansas Razorbacks joined the ranks after their 2OT win over the TCU Horned Frogs. Arkansas sits at No. 24 while their opponent is now out of the polls.

Alabama still leads the ranks after their 38-10 win over WKU. They are the lone team in the Top 10 from the conference as a slew of others rank from 11-25. Georgia dipped after their close call against Nicholls as the Bulldogs now sit at No. 13. Tennessee meanwhile sits at 15th despite their win over VaTech, and Ole Miss checks in at No. 17.

Finally, Texas A&M, LSU, Florida and the aforementioned Razorbacks show up from 20-25. The Aggies rank No. 20, while the Tigers, Gators and Razorbacks represent 22-24 in the polls.

In the AP poll, the same can be said, as eight teams are featured in the Top 25. They all fall in similar spots as well. Alabama stands at No. 1 and are the only SEC team in the Top 10 like the Coaches poll. However unlike the USA TODAY poll, the next team to check in is Tennessee at No. 15. Georgia dropped down to 16th and Texas A&M rose up to 17th from the 20 spot last week.

Ole Miss and LSU find themselves at 19 and 20 after victories this week, and Florida and Arkansas are newbies to the poll, as they both stand at No. 23 and No. 24.
