The Crimson Tide and Ducks don't appear ready to fall any time soon, while Michigan enters as the only Big Ten team in the Top 25.

There aren't many changes in the USA Today Coaches Poll following Saturday's games, as the Alabama Crimson Tide and Oregon Ducks remain in the top two spots. Alabama received 1475 points to Oregon's 1414 to keep the top spot in the polls.

Kansas State now moves into the third spot in the rankings following their win over Iowa State. It is their highest ranking since 2000.

The Big Ten finally saw a team return to the rankings, with Michigan taking the final spot in the polls with 96 points after it smashed Illinois 45-0.

Some teams took a tumble down the rankings, including West Virginia, who fell to No. 15 after its embarrassing loss to the Texas Tech Red Raiders.

Notre Dame continues to climb the polls, and is fifth after an exciting OT win over Stanford Saturday. The Irish will need some help however if they want to enter the National Championship picture.
