Top 25 coaches poll: Mississippi at No. 4 after upsetting Alabama

BY foxsports • October 5, 2014

Alabama lasted one week as the No. 1 team in the Top 25 coaches' poll --€“ it lost 23-17 to Ole Miss. But the Crimson Tide weren't the only heavyweight to fall --  No. 3 Oklahoma, No. 4 Oregon, No. 7 Texas A&M and No. 9 UCLA all took their first losses of the season.

The losses provided the biggest shakeup to date, with Ole Miss and Mississippi State joining the party inside the top 10 with victories over Alabama and Texas A&M, respectively.
