In this week's AP Top 25 Poll and Amway Coaches Poll, Ohio State remains on top, still dominating the first-place votes. Baylor is No. 2 in both polls, but after that, Clemson, TCU, LSU, Michigan State, Alabama, Notre Dame and Stanford make out the rest of the top 9 in various orders.
Not much in the way of major falls or rises. The AAC twist here remains with Memphis, Houston and Temple. The Tigers are ranked No. 15 in the AP Top 25 and No. 16 in the Coaches Poll. This week's opponent for Cincinnati, the Houston Cougars, are No. 18 in both polls after their win over Vanderbilt. Temple fell in a close one to Notre Dame on Saturday night, but remain in the top 25 of both polls (23rd in both), which is well deserved.
Navy received a lone vote in the AP Top 25 and received 42 votes in the Amway Coaches Poll. BYU received 27 votes and 19 votes, respectively. Cincinnati gets a chance to shake things up this week, playing against the Tom Herman-led Houston Cougars.
