Things now become every so interesting with the 22-16 loss by Florida State.

The Noles came into the GT game ranked #9 in the AP polls, however that will surely change. The Noles could wind up anywhere between 13-17. Ranked teams #15 TAMU and #3 Utah both lost, however everyone currently ranked 10-14 won. It is up to the voters on how they see Florida State's loss against #15 Michigan's or #17 Oklahoma's big wins and if they value those teams one loss over a Georgia Tech loss.

The coaches poll also had Florida State ranked #9. The Seminoles had a much larger lead over #10 Notre Dame and should only fall a few spots, and not as far as in the AP. #10 Notre Dame, #11 Stanford, #12 Oklahoma State and #13 Iowa should all jump FSU, which would ultimately place the Noles at #13.

Despite being a 3-5 Georgia Tech team, the Yellow Jackets losses are all to quality teams that are taken into consideration in both top 25 polls (Notre Dame, Duke, Clemson, North Carolina, Pittsburgh).
