A Jameis Winston-less Florida State was so close to losing at home to Clemson. But the team pulled out a win in overtime, meaning the Seminoles get to keep the No. 1 spot in the Associated Press Top 25. Do they deserve it? What's your take on the rest of the rankings?

Here's a new one: Alabama dropped in The Associated Press Top 25 ... despite winning. That's the level of respect Oregon is commanding after a thunderous come-from-behind victory over Michigan State on Saturday. The Ducks still aren't No. 1; that distinction belongs to defending national champion Florida State. What do you make of Oregon's No. 2 spot? Click on the logos below to set your rankings!
