Week two is in the books and, following a somewhat lackluster overpowering of the Mustangs, your Baylor Bears come in at No. 19 in the Coaches Poll and No. 21 in the AP Poll. Honestly, I wouldn’t have expected much different even if the Bears had beat SMU 70-7; the pollsters don’t really reward Baylor for beating down teams they are supposed to beat down. As for the rest of the polls, there was some shake up at the top, with Flordia State overtaking Clemson following a poor showing from the Tigers against a Troy team that went 4-8 last season.

At the bottom end of the polls, there is some controversy with Oklahoma State’s exclusion after they lost on an incredible Hail Mary hook-and-ladder that should never have happened. Unfortunately for the Pokes, the play will not be overruled and the loss will stand. It appears the pollsters have decided to view the game as a loss as well. TCU also dropped out of the Top 25 with their weird-in-a-way-that-only-a-Patterson-Bielema-game-could-be loss.
