There was no change at the top of the latest Associated Press top 25 this week, with No. 1 Alabama receiving 56 first-place votes. They were followed this week by No. 2 Florida State, with the Seminoles picking up four first-place votes. Big Ten rivals No. 3 Ohio State and No. 4 Michigan fall in line behind the Tide and Noles, with the Wolverines picking up another first-place vote this week. No. 5 Clemson was knocked down a few spots after a sluggish performance at home against Troy.
No. 6 Houston, No. 7 Stanford and No. 8 Washington held on to their spots in the AP poll this week, and No. 9 Wisconsin was bumped up one spot. Rounding out the top 10 this week is Louisville, up three spots from the previous week. No. 11 Texas and No. 12 Michigan State remained where they were a week ago. No. 13 Iowa moved up a few spots following a dismantling of Iowa State, jumping over No. 14 Oklahoma. No. 15 Tennessee rebounded to move up two spots this week following a more convincing win compared to their opener.
