Clemson dropped a spot in the Coaches Poll on Sunday.

After a frankly strange 14-8 win over Georgia Tech Saturday, Clemson fell to No. 7.

Alabama topped the poll with 64 first-place votes once again, followed by Georgia, Oklahoma, Oregon and Texas A&M.

After some shakeups in recent weeks, the top-10 from last week all triumphed, but that didn't mean there wasn't other movement, as Penn State jumped from No. 12 to No. 8 after downing Auburn and Ohio State fell out of the top-10.

In that group, Alabama held on at Florida, 31-29, Georgia controlled the action in a 40-13 win over South Carolina, Oklahoma had a surprisingly close call with Nebraska at home (23-16), Oregon rolled Stony Brook (48-7), Iowa moved to 3-0 with a 30-7 win over Kent State, Texas A&M shut out New Mexico (34-0), Cincinnati posted a big second half to win at Indiana (38-24), Ohio State pulled away late over Tulsa (41-20) and Notre Dame also pulled away late over Purdue (27-13).
