When the dust settled after what ended up being the most interesting weekend of the college football season, Alabama and Oregon stood atop the heap while the rest of the college football landscape dramatically changed.

Nine ranked teams lost for the first time since Oct. 18, 2008, which gave rise to new powers such as South Carolina, which landed at No. 3, Florida, which moved up six spots to No. 4, and West Virginia, which moved up three spots to No. 5.

Ah, chaos.

It was just a week ago many were championing Florida State as a potential national championship contender and Georgia looked poise to challenge Alabama for the SEC title. But the Seminoles lost 17-16 to N.C. State and South Carolina defeated Georgia 35-7.

And now it's anyone's game.

Just because Alabama and Oregon are unscathed and have looked dominant in their wins doesn't mean that the chaos that has shaken the bottom 23 couldn't find its way to the top.

There are still at least seven games remaining and both teams have to face ranked opponents in the coming weeks. That's why teams such as Notre Dame and Kansas State, who are on the outside of the Top 5 looking in, could very well find themselves in the hunt for the glass football when it's all said and done.

And we thought a college football playoff wasn't coming until 2014.

Here's a look at this week's AP Top 25:

1. Alabama (60)
2. Oregon
3. South Carolina
4. Florida
5. West Virginia
6. Kansas St.
7. Notre Dame
8. Ohio St.
9. LSU
10. Oregon St.
11. USC
12. Florida St.
13. Oklahoma
14. Georgia
15. Texas
16. Clemson
17. Stanford
18. Louisville
19. Mississippi St.
20. Rutgers
21. Cincinnati
22. Texas A&M
23. Louisiana Tech
24. Boise St.
25. Michigan
