Updated odds favor an Alabama-Clemson rematch in CFP National Championship

This also marks the first time since 1946, a 7-0 win over No. 20 North Carolina State, that Vandy has beaten a ranked non-conference opponent.

Oklahoma, which surged to the second spot in the rankings last week after a big win over Ohio State, fell to No. 3 even after their 56-14 victory over Tulane, so Sooners fans may have a bone to pick about that. The Sooners, however, got off to a slow start as they and the Green Wave were tied at 14 after the first quarter.

Penn State (3-0) and USC (3-0) round out the top five after flipping spots.

Clemson and Alabama are back to being the top two teams in the country.

Europa League: Iwobi In Action As Sanchez Fires Arsenal Past Cologne

Oklahoma State rose three spots to No. 6, its best ranking since late in the 2013 season. Clemson has a strong case for No. 1, as it has been one of the nation's most complete teams, and the win over Louisville puts it in the driver's seat in the ACC race.

LSU is still ranked in the top 25 despite losing by 30 to Mississippi State, who was unranked. Fourth-ranked Penn State swapped positions with Southern California. Oklahoma State 7. Washington 8. Georgia 12. Florida State 13.

The LSU Tigers came into the weekend on the outside looking in of the top 10, with a decent argument being made that they could move to that neighborhood with a win. Mississippi State 18. Washington State 19.

Auburn, meanwhile, looked like it had a hangover following its loss to Clemson, with four fumbles and an interception against an FCS team that resurrected its program just five years ago.
