The first post-Week 1 Associated Press college football top-25 poll has been released, and while nothing has changed at the top there was some major shuffling elsewhere in the poll.

With three top-10 teams losing over the weekend, it resulted in some elite teams moving down the rankings with other teams making huge jumps in the polls.

Alabama remains No.1 after its thorough and convincing win over USC on Saturday. Right behind the Crimson Tide is Clemson, who while challenged at Auburn won its game on Saturday to remain No. 2 in the polls.

The rest of the top-five includes Florida State, who had a stunning comeback win over Ole Miss Monday, at No.3. Meanwhile, Big Ten teams Ohio State and Michigan round out the top-five at No. 4 and No. 5, respectively, after each club had easy wins over the weekend.

Wisconsin, after its impressive win over LSU on Saturday, is one of the new teams in the top-25. The Badgers vaulted all the way up to No. 10 in the new poll. Texas, who had a dramatic win over Notre Dame on Sunday, appear in the top-25 for the first time under head coach Charlie Strong, as the Longhorns check in at No.11.

Houston, after its terrific win over Oklahoma. jumped from No. 15 to No. 6. Georgia, who beat North Carolina, also made a bug jump moving from No.18 to No. 9 in the polls.

Among the major fallers are LSU, who dropped from No.5 to No.21, and Oklahoma, who dropped from No. 3 to No. 14. Notre Dame moved down eight spots to No.18 with its loss to Texas.

And even with its narrow win over Appalachian State, Tennessee dropped nine spots in the polls to No. 17.

New teams in the polls include Miami at No.25 and Texas A&M at No.21.
