Watching the Polls: Baylor Up To #3 in Coaches, #5 in AP Polls

The Coaches were apparently impressed enough with Baylor's showing yesterday on a day of upsets to reward the Bears with the #3 spot in their newest rankings and one first-place vote.

The Week 7 Polls are now both in, and the Baylor Bears are the #5 and #3 teams in the Coaches and AP Polls, respectively.  Here's the full chart, with Sagarin thrown in for good measure:

AP Coaches Sagarin
1 Florida State Florida State Auburn
2 Auburn Auburn Oklahoma
3 Mississippi State, Ole Miss (tie) Baylor Ole Miss
Ole Miss Alabama
5 Baylor Notre Dame Baylor
6 Notre Dame Mississippi State Texas A&M
7 Alabama Alabama TCU
8 Michigan State Michigan State Mississippi State
9 TCU Oklahoma Notre Dame
10 Arizona Georgia Georgia
11 Oklahoma Oregon Oregon
12 Oregon TCU UCLA
13 Georgia Arizona Florida State
14 Texas A&M Texas A&M Michigan State
15 Ohio State Ohio State Stanford
16 Oklahoma State Kansas State LSU
17 Kansas State UCLA Ohio State
18 UCLA Oklahoma State Clemson
19 East Carolina East Carolina USC
20 Arizona State Arizona State Florida
21 Nebraska Nebraska Kansas State
22 Georgia Tech Stanford Arkansas
23 Missouri Georgia Tech Nebraska
24 Utah Missouri Wisconsin
25 Stanford Clemson Louisvlle

As I mentioned on Twitter, I am genuinely surprised that neither of the Mississippi schools jumped us in this particular poll, though I still expect one or both to do so later today in the eyes of the Associated Press.  Baylor is now the highest-ranked Big 12 school, followed by OU at 9, TCU at 12, KSU at 16, and OSU at 18.  I would have placed each of the last three slightly higher, if it was me making the poll, but it isn't.

Check back throughout the day for updates containing the various polls.  I'll put them in whenever we get them.  Also, give me your thoughts in the comments below!

UPDATE: AP Poll now in, too, and the Bears were jumped by both of the Mississippi schools, as we expected.
