The biggest game of this coming weekend will pit the Buckeyes against the Wolverines, while the Crimson Tide will play a stout Auburn team in the Iron Bowl. Clemson will face in-state rival South Carolina.
While the top teams held steady, a stunning loss by Louisville knocked the Cardinals from No. 5 all the way down to No. 11. Louisville's pain was Washington's gain, as the Huskies moved up to No. 5 ahead of their Apple Cup showdown against No. 23 Washington State.
Surging USC slots in at No. 12 behind the Cardinals. The Trojans are followed by No. 13 Auburn, which has a chance to make a statement if the Tigers can deliver top-ranked Alabama its first loss of the season on Saturday.
