Week 2 has come and gone and with it, some shakeups in the Amway Coaches Poll. There was nothing to look at in the top portion of the poll, as the Top five teams stayed the same but after that, it was a game of musical rankings.

Michigan State dropped seven spots following its road loss to Oregon. Texas A&M shot up into the Top 10, and Ohio State, following a loss to Virginia Tech dropped 10 spots to No. 18.

Northern Illinois, following a 23-15 win over Northwestern on Saturday, received five votes this week. This technically ranks the Huskies No. 42.
