Alabama, Michigan, Clemson and Washington remain unbeaten and are ranked as the top four teams in the new Top 25 college football polls. Alabama had a bye last weekend to get ready for their matchup with LSU Saturday and continues to dominate the #1 voting. Nebraska, Baylor, West Virginia and Boise St. all fell from the unbeatens and rearranged the top ten rankings. The losses by Baylor and West Virginia left the Big 12 without a top-10 team for the first time in the conference history that started in 1996.

This Tuesday night, the College Football Playoff selection committee unveils its first rankings of the season. Alabama is #1, receiving all but one of the 61 first-place votes from the media panel. Michigan received one first-place vote after beating state rival, Michigan St. on Saturday. Both #3 Clemson and #4 Washington won road games against ranked teams Saturday.
