Florida fell five spots to No. 11 after their loss to new No. 6 Georgia at the Cocktail Party Saturday. Both of the SEC East teams can lay claim to being the top one- and two-loss programs in the poll respectively.

The top otherwise remained unchanged with all but No. 3 Clemson off last week. No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 LSU combined for 48 first place votes ahead of their meeting in Tuscaloosa next Saturday.

Also notable is the fall of SMU, which dropped to No. 23 after losing a close one at new No. 19 Memphis in primetime. The Tigers are actually not the top Group of Five team in the poll as fellow AAC rival Cincinnati moved up to No. 17.

No. 24 San Diego State and No. 25 Navy also joined the rankings replacing Appalachian State and Texas after the latter two lost their most recent games.
