Just one team separates the Baylor Bears and Oklahoma Sooners in the latest Coaches Poll, released a few minutes ago on USAToday.com.  Coming off a huge road win over Buffalo, Baylor is the new #6, while Oklahoma somehow fell a spot even after beating Tennessee in somewhat dominant fashion.

The full AP/Coaches Polls with Sagarin along for good measure.

Somewhat surprised not to see Oklahoma State make the list here on the Coaches Poll, but my guess is that they are included in the "also receiving votes" category.

Also, before anyone says it: I fully understand that these polls have no determinative value in the era of the CFB Playoff.  I post them for a look at how the team is viewed nation-wide.  Also, I strongly believe that if you think they won't matter at all in the minds of individual committee members, you are fooling yourself.

UPDATE: The AP Poll has now been released, and Baylor is #7 there.
