Despite not playing this week the Rutgers Scarlet Knights were able to move up to No. 20 in the latest USA Today Coaches' Poll, released Sunday. The Scarlet Knights (7-1) were ranked 25th in the country by the coaches last week after losing to the Kent State Golden Flashes, but benefited this week from other teams losing and dropping out of the poll.
Meanwhile, the very top of the poll remained the same with the Alabama Crimson Tide (No. 1), Oregon Ducks (No. 2), Kansas St. Wildcats (No. 3) and Notre Dame Fighting Irish (No. 4) staying in the same spots.
