The USA Today Coaches’ Poll has been updated, and retaining their top spot is the Alabama Crimson Tide, beating out the Oregon Ducks by a whopping 53 first-place votes.

The Louisville Cardinals fell just eight spots after losing at home to an unranked UCF team, who just barely squeaked into the rankings at No. 25.

The biggest riser was the Texas Tech Red Raiders, who climbed from No. 16 all the way to No. 9.

Speaking of which, the Big-12 now has a pair of teams in the top-10 now that the Baylor Bears rank No. 5.

Despite a 51-14 loss at home to the Florida State Seminoles, the Clemson Tigers remained in the top-10 at No. 10, and Stanford climbed back into the top-10 after knocking UCLA out of it with their 24-10 win over the Bruins on Saturday.
