The first polls after the Playoff rankings generally feature some changes to reflect that committee's deliberation, and this one was no different.

Clemson moved up to match its CFP ranking at No. 3 with the Coaches Poll, following Alabama (59 first-place votes) and Notre Dame (2) and ahead of Ohio State (1).

Notre Dame picked up a top-25 win at North Carolina, 31-17, while Alabama cruised over Auburn (42-13) and Clemson did the same with Pittsburgh (52-17). On the fringe of that top-4, Florida pulled away from Kentucky, 34-10, and Texas A&M downed LSU at home, 20-7. Ohio State and Cincinnati each had an unscheduled weekend off due to COVID-19 protocol.

The ACC's other rep is Miami at No. 9.
