A college football weekend with interesting results but few upsets produced little movement in the Amway Coaches Poll with the top 10 teams unchanged.

Alabama retains the No. 1 spot after a dominant non-conference triumph against Arkansas State. The Crimson Tide received 59 of 63 first-place votes. Clemson remains No. 2 after a narrow road escape at Texas A&M. The Tigers were voted first on three ballots. Georgia had an easier time with its trip to then-No. 24 South Carolina, but the Bulldogs stay put at No. 3. No. 4 Ohio State again picked up a single first-place nod, and Oklahoma rounds out the top five.

TOP 25: The complete Amway Coaches Poll

Stock up: Virginia Tech. The Hokies nudge ahead of Washington into the No. 11 spot after easily handling William & Mary.

Stock down: Michigan State. The highest ranked team to lose over the weekend, the Spartans tumble 11 positions to No. 24 after a last-second loss to Arizona State. The Sun Devils enter at No. 25 thanks to that victory.

Stock up: Oklahoma State. The Cowboys climb four places to No. 19 with Boise State coming to Stillwater next weekend.

Stock down: Southern California. The Trojans were throttled by No. 9 Stanford and fall nine places to No. 21.

Stock up: LSU. The Tigers, checking in at No. 13 on the eve of their showdown with No. 7 Auburn, lead a parade of teams gaining two positions in the poll’s second tier.

New kids on the block: No. 23 Oregon, No. 25 Arizona State.

College dropouts: South Carolina, Florida.
