The Amway Coaches Poll saw a bit of shuffling after a busy Week 3. The changes, however, didn’t reach the top five.
Alabama easily retained the No. 1 ranking after a dominant road win at Ole Miss. The Crimson Tide received 60 of 63 first-place votes. Clemson, which handled Georgia Southern, is No. 2 with a pair of firsts. Georgia remained No. 3. Fourth-ranked Ohio State retained the final No.-1 vote but held steady at fourth overall after a solid win against TCU. The Horned Frogs dropped only three places to No. 17 after the loss to the Buckeyes. Oklahoma passed a road challenge at Iowa State and continues to round out the top five.
