Alabama and Florida State continue to hold down the top two spots after winning easily against lackluster competition.   

The Crimson Tide shut out Chattanooga in Tuscaloosa, winning 49-0 behind a 251-yard team rushing performance. However, head coach Nick Saban isn't ready to celebrate Alabama's 11-0 start, per RollTide.com:

Our focus needs to immediately shift to the opportunities that we have created for ourselves in the games that we have in the future. Obviously, the one we have this week against Auburn is a very important game. They have a great team and have had a great season. It’s going to be important for everybody in our organization to make a commitment to doing their very best job and play our best football because that’s probably what it’s going to take to have success against a very good team.

Alabama will battle 10-1 Auburn in the Iron Bowl on Saturday afternoon in what projects to be the best matchup this coming weekend. The winner will advance to the SEC Championship Game in December. 

Meanwhile, the Seminoles, who scored 80 points against Idaho on Saturday, should have a much easier time in their regular-season-ending rivalry showdown at Florida. The Gators have dropped six in a row, guaranteeing their first losing season since 1979.

What's more, Florida is coming off a home loss to Georgia Southern. 

Elsewhere, Ohio State is 11-0 after thrashing Indiana on Saturday. Braxton Miller scored four total touchdowns in the 28-point rout. As of now, the Buckeyes, who take on Michigan on the road next week, still need to win out and have Alabama or Florida State lose in order to secure a berth in the BCS National Championship Game next January.  

Clemson and Auburn jump into the Top Five this week, replacing Baylor and Oregon, who had their national championship hopes dashed by Oklahoma State and Arizona, respectively.

Tajh Boyd and Clemson will conclude the regular season at South Carolina while Gus Malzahn's Tigers are headed for a colossal showdown with two-time defending champion Alabama.

Which undefeated title contender is the most likely to stumble in Week 14?

Missouri's hard-fought win at Ole Miss on Saturday night means that the Tigers can lock up the SEC East division and book a spot in the conference championship game with a win over Texas A&M. Keep in mind that the upset-minded Aggies have far less to lose and are coming off a 24-point loss at LSU this past weekend.

That prime-time matchup will be one of five Top 25 clashes this Saturday. 

Overall, Week 14 will feature plenty more rivalry matchups and high-stakes showdowns as the country's top teams continue their push to the top of the BCS.
