The first USA Today/NWCA/AWN Division I Coaches Poll of 2014 comes with little changes as Penn State remained the unanimous No. 1 as the poll was released on Tuesday.

The Nittany Lions (7-0) garnered all 10 first-place votes. The poll was unchanged from spots 1-13, while there was some movement in the middle and at the bottom half of the poll.

Edinboro moved up one spot to No. 14, while Virginia Tech fell to No. 15. Stanford dropped three spots to No. 21 after a loss to unranked Chattanooga over the holiday break. Boise State moved into the Top 25 at No. 25 after Rider, previous ranked No. 25, lost to Harvard over the weekend.
