College Football Rankings: Coaches Poll Follows AP Poll, Buckeyes #5

With the AP Poll already out, the USAToday Coaches poll was released just minutes ago and Auburn takes home the #1 spot - of course - after their 22-19 win over Oregon in the BCS Championship Game last night.  TCU was #2, but unlike the AP Poll that saw the Horned-Frogs get 3 first-place votes, only one coach saw fit to give TCU a top-nod.  

Oregon was #3, Stanford #4 and Ohio State rounded out the Top-5.

Oklahoma finished the season at No. 6, followed by Boise State, which finished in the Top 10 for the third time in the last five seasons.

LSU and Wisconsin finished in a tie for eighth place, followed by Oklahoma State at No. 10.

Alabama, which crushed Michigan State in the Capital One Bowl, jumped seven spots from the final regular season poll and finished the season at No. 11.

Arkansas, Nevada, Michigan State and Virginia Tech rounded out the Top 15.
