Florida State did not jump Oregon in the polls after the 41-14 win against Miami on Saturday night, but the primetime performance was good enough for a few voters to change their mind regarding the No. 1 spot. The Seminoles received six first-place votes in the 60-person balloting, closing the gap on Oregon but falling short of displacing the Ducks for No. 2.

There was little shake up in the Top 25 as six of the top 13 teams in the country -- Alabama, Oregon, Baylor, Stanford, LSU, Oklahoma -- had the weekend off in advance of headline conference showdownsin Week 11.

Michigan State jumped up to No. 18 from No. 24 after its dominant defensive performance against Michigan and Oklahoma State moved up three spots to No. 15 after going on the road and running over Texas Tech, leaving with a 52-34 win.
