The Alabama Crimson Tide and Oregon Ducks continue to jockey for the No. 1 spot in the FanSided Top 25 poll. Alabama retains its top billing with eight first place votes, but Oregon was right on its heels with six.

Missouri’s upset of Georgia elevated the Tigers to No. 14. Gary Pinkel’s bunch was the week’s big mover. UCLA also made moves, climbing to a tie with Louisville for No. 7.

Stanford’s loss at Utah dropped the Cardinal out of the Top 10. The ACC now stands as the most well-represented conference in the Top 5 with the Clemson Tigers at No. 3, and Florida State Seminoles at No. 5.
