(AP/KXAN) — There’s been a shuffle at the top of the latest Associated Press and Amway Coaches polls. Alabama is at No. 1 ahead of No. 2 Clemson after the Tigers escaped Chapel Hill with a 21-20 win against North Carolina Saturday.

Ohio State’s offensive dominance propelled the Buckeyes to No. 4 ahead of No. 5 LSU.

Texas had the week off the schedule and maintained its spot at No. 11. The Longhorns are No. 12 in the Coaches poll.

No. 25 Texas A&M remained in the top 25 despite a less than impressive win against Arkansas Saturday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. The Aggies held on in the red zone stopping Arkansas’ final fourth quarter drive for a 31-27 win.

Texas A&M stayed at No. 21 in the Coaches poll.
