Kansas State slides four places in AP, Coaches polls

Well, hey, it could've been worse.

Looks like our luck ran out.

The new polls are here! The new polls are here! The new -- wait, this isn't fun. Kansas State slid four spots in both the AP Poll and the Amway/USA Today Coaches' Poll today after last night's brutal abuse at the hands of their purple brethren from Texas.

It could have been worse. Three other teams taking their second loss of the year tumbled further. Auburn dropped six places in both polls, Michigan State dropped five in the AP and six in the coaches', and Notre Dame fell seven and eight respectively.

The big gainers all moved up to vacate the space abandoned by those three teams and K-State. Baylor, Ohio State, and Arizona State all moved up four spots in the coaches' poll; the same was true of the AP except Ohio State, starting further back, jumped five places (leapfrogging Ole Miss in the process).

As with last week, we've included the computers, but we've switched from just using the Massey Ratings by themselves to the composite of all computer rankings which have been released thus far, as posted by Massey. We've included the top 40 teams in that composite, regardless of whether they received votes in the polls (hello, Louisiana Tech and Utah State) to counter the teams that are getting votes but aren't favored by computers (Georgia Southern and Cincinnati).
