In the latest release of the Associated Press Top 25 poll, there were no changes among the top four teams.
Alabama, Michigan, Clemson and Washington retained spots 1-4 without issue. The latter three teams all won this weekend, while Alabama lounged around on bye. Just below that undefeated quartet, Louisville and Ohio State held firm at No. 5 and No. 6, respectively. Not holding steady, the Big 12. With Baylor and West Virginia both taking slides following losses that ended undefeated hopes and dreams (they reside side-by-side in misery at No. 13 and No. 14, respectively), the conference does not boast an entrant in the top 10. Indeed, the most interesting team in the Big 12, at least by poll movement, is Oklahoma. The Sooners currently own two losses to their fair name, but actually jumped both Baylor and West Virginia with their blowout of Kansas on Saturday, moving from No. 16 to No. 12. One other interesting riser -- Auburn. Also saddled with two losses, the Tigers slot in at No. 11, up four spots from No. 15. The first set of Playoff rankings releases Tuesday.
