After entering the 2015 College Football season without any fanfare, the AAC has three teams in the Top 25 polls at the end of the regular season.

Here are your Week 14 Polls. We have the AP Top 25 Poll, the Coaches Poll, Bill Connelly's S&P+ Ratings Poll and the Massey computer composite, which compiles all the rankings out there.

Focusing on the AP and Coaches Polls, we begin with Clemson and Alabama at No. 1 and No. 2 in both polls. Oklahoma and Iowa flesh out the top 4 in both, even if the Sooners are No. 3 in the AP Poll and the Hawkeyes have that distinction in the Coaches Poll. Michigan State is No. 5 in both polls with Ohio State sitting at No. 6, following their big win over now-No. 19 Michigan. Notre Dame fell to No. 9 in the AP Poll and No. 10 in the Coaches Poll following their loss to Stanford. Michigan dropped the furthest in the Coaches Poll from No. 12 to 19. Florida had the most significant drop in the AP Poll, falling from No. 10 to No. 18.

As for the AAC, Houston, Temple and Navy all finish the regular season in the Top 25 for both polls. Houston leads the way, following their beatdown of Navy, ranked No. 17 in the AP Top 25. The Cougars are No. 18 in the Coaches Poll. Temple is No. 20 and No. 21 in the AP Poll and Coaches Poll, respectively. The Midshipmen stuck around in the polls following their loss, ranking No. 22 in both polls. South Florida and Memphis are both receiving votes, beyond the Top 25 in either poll.
