A week after a handful of notable results left the Top 25 in shambles, there was a state of stasis over the Associated Press Top 25 following Saturday's action.

The top nine teams remain in place from last week, spearheaded by unquestioned No. 1 Alabama. Miami remains in the second spot with three first-place votes and is followed by Oklahoma, Clemson and Wisconsin to round out the Top Five.

Here is a look at how the entire poll played out:

1. Alabama

2. Miami

3. Oklahoma

4. Clemson

5. Wisconsin

6. Auburn

7. Georgia

8. Ohio State

9. Notre Dame

10. TCU

11. USC

12. Penn State

13. UCF

14. Washington State

15. Washington

16. Mississippi State

17. Memphis

18. Oklahoma State

19. LSU

20. Stanford

21. Michigan State

22. South Florida

23. Northwestern

24. Virginia Tech

25. Boise State

Some observers dubbed this weekend in college football Cupcake Saturday due to the relative weakness of elite teams' opponents. Alabama showed Mercer no mercy, Oklahoma blew out Kansas and Clemson put 61 points on The Citadel.

Miami had a slight scare against Virginia before scoring 30 unanswered points in a 44-28 victory. Wisconsin got its second win of the season over a ranked opponent against Michigan and subsequently saw the Wolverines fall out of the Top 25.

The most notable result of the week was Oklahoma State's 45-40 home loss to unranked Kansas State. The Cowboys dropped eight spots to No. 18 after losing two of their last three games.

For the most part, however, it was a quiet weekend as no Top 25 team moved up more than two spots. Northwestern, Virginia Tech and Boise State are the new entries in the rankings.

Michigan, West Virginia and NC State each fell out of the Top 25 following losses this weekend.
