No. 1 Mississippi State (46 first-place votes) and No. 2 Florida State (14) are the only unbeaten teams left in the Big Five conferences.

Alabama, which lost 23-17 at Ole Miss earlier this month, moved up a spot, as did No. 4 Auburn, No. 5 Oregon and No. 6 Notre Dame.

Ole Miss was beaten 10-7 at LSU on Saturday night. The Tigers moved up eight spots to No. 16, the largest jump after a weekend when only two ranked teams lost.

The first selection committee top 25 will be released Tuesday night. The pairings for the College Football Playoff will be revealed Dec. 7.
