With most of the nation's top teams on bye and most others playing against lesser opponents, it was a quiet week in the Associated Press Top 25.

LSU remains the nation's top-ranked team, with Alabama one spot behind as the schools prepare for their clash next Saturday. Ohio State, Clemson and Penn State round out the unchanged Top Five. 

Here's how the entire poll played out:

1. LSU

2. Alabama

3. Ohio State

4. Clemson

5. Penn State

6. Georgia

7. Oregon

8. Utah

9. Oklahoma

10. Florida

11. Baylor

12. Auburn

13. Minnesota

14. Michigan

15. Notre Dame

16. Wisconsin

17. Cincinnati

18. Iowa

19. Memphis

20. Kansas State

21. Boise State

22. Wake Forest

23. SMU

24. San Diego State

25. Navy

There were only two Top 25 matchups on the slate, with Georgia moving up two slots to No. 6 after a 24-17 win over Florida. Jake Fromm threw for 279 yards and two touchdowns, and Lawrence Cager hauled in seven balls for 132 yards in the statement win.

"There's been a lot of outside noise, and this has been a challenge to our guys to not listen to the outside noise but to really jell within our locker room," Fromm told reporters. "To come out and respond and play the way we did today, it really shows what our guys are made of, their hearts and what we mean to each other."

Georgia has won the last three meetings over Florida in the longtime rivalry. The Gators dropped down two spots to No. 10 and saw their chances of reaching the playoffs fall by the wayside.

SMU's dream of playing playoff spoiler also crashed and burned Saturday in a 54-48 loss at Memphis. Brady White threw for 350 yards and three touchdowns, and a hard-charging SMU offense ran out of time in a raucous College GameDay atmosphere.

"This stage, this moment, this opportunity, they came out and they played with everything they had against a really good football team," Memphis coach Mike Norvell told reporters.

Given the quiet week, there was not much in the way of movement in the polls. Memphis' five-spot leap was the biggest recorded, while SMU dropped eight spots to No. 23.

Navy is the only new team in the Top 25, entering at No. 25 after beating UConn.
