'Bama Tightens Grip on No. 1

The new AP Top 25 has been released, and just about everything is the same after only one team in last week's top 10 lost.
In fact, the biggest news in the top 10 might just be that Miami received one fewer first-place vote this week (three) than it did last week (four). It looks like voters were more impressed by Alabama pasting Mercer than they were with Miami struggling with Virginia for a little bit, even if the Canes won by 16 points in the end.
Elsewhere, the team that took the biggest tumble was Oklahoma State. The Cowboys dropped from No. 10 to No. 18 thanks to a 45-40 loss to Kansas State.
With a lack of surprising results this weekend it's no surprise that this week's Coaches Poll remains largely intact.
In fact, the entire top 12 is the same this week, as the changes came lower in the poll. The SEC was the conference taking advantage of that, because with LSU moving up from No. 21 to No. 18, the conference now has five teams in the top 20.
Alabama, Miami, Clemson, Wisconsin, and Oklahoma are top five this week, rounded out with Auburn, Georgia, Ohio State, Notre Dame and USC.
