Up to date school soccer polls: AP Prime 25, coach polls ranked after week four

It didn’t take long.

The SEC couldn’t even make it a weekend before succumbing to chaos, which resulted in a couple of head-scratching wins from massively favored teams and an even bigger surprise.

That begins with Mississippi State’s 44:34 loss to sixth-placed LSU, the first defending national champion since Michigan to lose their first game of the next season in 1998. Mike Leach’s “Air Raid” offense was too much for a jaded LSU defense, and the Tigers ‘offense was nowhere near enough to keep up with the flurry of Bulldogs’ passports.

Even Georgia and Texas A&M, ranked 3rd and 10th in the AP Top 25 on Saturday, battled for victories against vastly superior opponents: The Bulldogs fell at halftime against Arkansas and first year coach Sam Pittman with 7: 5 out before settling on them a 37-10 win. The Aggies, meanwhile, couldn’t do anything offensive against Vanderbilt and stumbled upon a 17-12 win.

Those aren’t the biggest storylines of Saturday either: This unfortunate award goes to third-placed Oklahoma, which in a 38:35 surprise gave 24 unanswered points to the state of Kansas. That loss is particularly bad considering that the Wildcats only game that year was a loss to Arkansas State. The Big 12 were almost entirely out of the picture in the college football playoffs not too long after that. Texas # 8 had to score 15 unanswered points in the last three minutes to force overtime against Texas Tech. The Longhorns won in overtime with 63-56.

As expected, these games changed the outlook for college football significantly, which is reflected in this week’s leaderboard. Here are the latest AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll rankings after a chaotic game week 4:
