(Photo by Jonathan Ferrey/Getty Images)With the release of the updated Coaches’ Poll this afternoon, all of the college football national rankings have been updated going into Week 2.There were a few changes on the charts, with Boise State and Nebraska entering the fold and Iowa State and Northwestern bowing out. Auburn made a sizable jump, while Oregon fell off as a result of their loss to the Tigers.It is very early in the season, and it will take some more time to sort out which teams are truly elite from the rest of the pack. However, it’s never too soon to look at who might be sitting a little higher than they deserve.By our estimation, here are the three “most overrated” teams in the updated Coaches’ Poll.Note, we listed them according to the order they were ranked in the poll, not by which we think is most overrated: No. 10 FloridaFull disclosure: we ranked Florida seventh in our preseason top 25, so we were buying into them pretty heavily. But the Gators did not look like a top-10 team in their season-opening win over Miami on August 24. They have to get more consistency out of Feleipe Franks if they are going to win double-digit games and make a run at the SEC East. We’ll see if the extra time off helped them this weekend.No. 16 WisconsinWe didn’t rank the Badgers in the preseason, but had them pegged as the “first team out.” Therefore, it feels like No. 16 is slightly high, even after an impressive beatdown of USF in Week 1. Jonathan Taylor is a superstar, but we need to see Wisconsin against some better competition before we have them on the cusp of the top 15.No. 18 OregonThe Ducks dropped five spots after losing to Auburn. Even though the Tigers are a quality team, we feel Oregon should have fallen just outside the top 20. This was a game you led by two touchdowns with a projected top-10 NFL Draft pick at quarterback and a freshman making his first start playing against you. That’s a brutal start to the season for a team expected to compete for the Pac-12 title.You can view the full Coaches’ Poll here. The latest AP top 25 is here.last_img
