Alabama retains the No. 1 position after a bye week, as the Crimson Tide are still awaiting a true challenger that will seriously contest their shot at a third straight national title.

Florida State wasn't able to leapfrog Oregon despite the Seminoles' utter destruction of the now-No. 14 Miami Hurricanes, remaining at No. 3 while the Ducks held on to No. 2.

Following FSU's big victory against Miami, head coach Jimbo Fisher addressed the team's case for a championship bid, via the AP's Kareem Copeland:

We played the No. 7 team in the country and we won by 27. That's a very good football team. We're just going to keep playing well and let people judge. This is a heck of a football team here.

Oregon will get a chance to further separate itself on Thursday when it takes on No. 6 Stanford in a nationally televised showdown.

Ohio State continued its undefeated run, as the No. 4 Buckeyes blanked Purdue, 56-0, and proved that they are still criminally underrated in 2013.

Baylor rounds out the Top Five this week, remaining stagnant during a bye. The No. 5 Bears face a make-or-break game on Thursday night against No. 12 Oklahoma.

Will Alabama fall from its perch in 2013?

No. 7 Auburn, No. 8 Clemson, No. 9 Missouri and No. 10 LSU round out the Top 10, with the former three teams winning handily against inferior opponents and the latter taking a week of rest.

Things were a bit more interesting outside the top. Oklahoma State improved its position in the standings dramatically by defeating now-No. 25 Texas Tech. The 'Pokes climbed three spots to No. 15 upon pulling the upset.

Michigan State proved that it is for real with a big win over rival Michigan. The No. 18 Spartans demolished the now-unranked Wolverines in an East Lansing battle.

Notre Dame slipped into the polls at No. 24 after a thrilling back-and-forth battle with Navy. The Fighting Irish were the only team to jump into the rankings this week, capitalizing on Michigan's misfortunes.

Week 10 of the season has set the stage perfectly for an all-important Week 11. With two games on tap that will significantly impact the BCS picture on Thursday night, you can be sure that this coming week is one of college football’s best.

You won’t want to miss a minute, so tune in as soon as the action starts and follow it through to the release of the Week 12 poll.
