For the first time this season, Clemson is not the No. 1 team in either of the two major weekly polls. The USA Today/Amway Coaches Poll has dropped the Tigers, fresh off a 21-20 scare at North Carolina, to No. 2 after having them as the top-ranked team since the preseason.

The slight drop reflects a wide narrative about the defending national champs: they keep winning, but they haven't looked as clean as they did towards the end of last season. While Clemson had won comfortably until this weekend, it needed to stop a two-point conversion to beat the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill. Interestingly, though, Clemson still has the most first-place votes of any team with 30. 

Alabama, the new No. 1 team, beat Ole Miss 59-31 behind a record-setting day from quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and receiver DeVonta Smith. The Crimson Tide are the top-ranked team again for the first time since the end of the regular season last year. Ohio State also enters the top five after dismantling Nebraska 48-7 and received four first-place votes. 

Though the weekend went mostly chalk, No. 16 Cal fell out of the top 25 after losing to Arizona State. Meanwhile, Michigan State and Oklahoma State rose five spots to enter the top 25.
