Here is your Week 12 AP Top 25 Poll and Amway Coaches Poll. There was a good deal of moment across both polls with an eventful Saturday in the world of college football. Clemson has officially taken over the top spot in both polls with Ohio State, Alabama, Oklahoma State, Notre Dame, Iowa, Oklahoma, Florida, Michigan State and Baylor rounding our the top 10 of each poll. Baylor, LSU, Stanford and Utah all dropped following losses.

Our AAC twist this week begins with Houston. The Cougars outlasted Memphis Saturday night, even without Greg Ward Jr. for most of the game and have been rewarded, reaching No. 13 in the AP Top 25 and No. 14 in the Coaches Poll. Navy is ranked 19th in both polls after blowing out SMU. The Midshipmen have one loss on the season and it was against Notre Dame.

Memphis and Temple both dropped out of the top 25 in each poll. Memphis earned 35 votes in the AP Top 25 and 51 votes in the Amway. The Owls were beaten down by USF on Saturday and only received 13 votes in the AP Top 25 Poll. They received 17 in the Coaches Poll.
