Alabama was the new No. 1 in the Coaches Poll, and the Crimson Tide have now claimed the top spot in the latest AP Top 25 poll as well. Fresh off its 59-31 win over Ole Miss, Alabama claims the top spot from AP voters with 1,478 points. Clemson drops only spot to No. 2 after holding off North Carolina 21-20. The rest of the AP top five stays mostly the same, with the notable change of Ohio State leap-frogging LSU to go from No. 5 to No. 4. The Buckeyes won easily at Nebraska 48-7. 

Other than some minor shuffling, there weren’t too many major changes in this week’s poll. Like with the Coaches Poll, Cal dropped out after losing to Arizona State. Four new teams entered the rankings this week: Arizona State, Oklahoma State, Wake Forest and SMU. The Mustangs are ranked for the first time since October 1986.
