The top five teams in both major polls, released Sunday, remained the same, including Alabama still holding the No. 1 spot. Alabama (5-0) received 55 of 60 first-place votes in the Associated Press top 25 poll, a day after defeating Georgia State 45-3 Saturday. The Crimson Tide got 57 of 62 top votes in the USA Today coaches poll. No. 2 Oregon, also 5-0, picked up the remaining top votes in the AP poll after beating Colorado 57-16. In the coaches poll, Oregon got four votes and Clemson received one. No. 3 Clemson (5-0), No. 4 Ohio State (6-0) and No. 5 Stanford (5-0) made up the rest of the AP top five. The only difference in the USA Today top five is having Clemson and Ohio State flip-flopped. Florida State climbed from eighth to No. 6 in both polls after an impressive 63-0 shutout of previous-No. 25 Maryland. The Seminoles moved ahead of Georgia, which edged unranked Tennessee 34-31 in overtime without running back Todd Gurley. They also lost running back Keith Marshall to a knee injury in the first quarter. Georgia (4-1) fell from sixth to No. 7 in both polls. Arizona State, Ole Miss and Maryland fell out of the AP top 25 and were replaced by No. 23 Northern Illinois, No. 24 Virginia Tech and No. 25 Missouri. In the coaches poll, Northern Illinois stayed 23rd, Nebraska moved from 25th to No. 24 and Virginia Tech entered the poll at No. 25, replacing Arizona State.
