USA Today coaches poll released

The USA Today college football coaches poll is out, and South Carolina in, and possibly underrated, at No. 12.

The Gamecocks are the only Carolinas team in the initial rankings, although North Carolina (with 14 points), Clemson (7), and N.C. State (4)  also received votes.

Oklahoma is No. 1, with Alabama, Oregon, LSU and Florida State rounding out the top 5. 

In addition to Florida State, the ACC is represented in the top 25 by No. 13 Virginia Tech.

In addition to Alabama and LSU, No. 14 Arkansas, No. 19 Auburn, No. 20 Mississippi State, No. 22 Georgia and No. 23 Florida are in from the SEC.
