Clemson and Alabama are back to being the top two teams in the country.

The Crimson Tide stayed at No. 1 following a win over Colorado State in Week 3 while Clemson moved up to No. 2 from No. 3 after beating Louisville on the road. The Tide and Tigers have played each other in the last two College Football Playoff National Championship games.

Oklahoma, which beat Tulane, fell from No. 2 to No. 3. Penn State moved up a spot to No. 4 as USC fell a spot to No. 5 following its overtime win vs. Texas.

The post-Week 3 poll has a few quirks. Miami is up to No. 14 from No. 17 despite not playing. The Hurricanes’ game vs. Florida State originally scheduled for Week 3 is going to be played Oct. 7. Meanwhile, Florida State fell a spot to No. 12.

LSU is still ranked in the top 25 despite losing by 30 to Mississippi State, who was unranked. The Bulldogs are now at No. 17. Vanderbilt, which beat a ranked K-State team on Saturday night, is not ranked despite having three wins. The Commodores host Alabama in Week 4.

Here’s the complete poll:

1. Alabama
2. Clemson
3. Oklahoma
4. Penn State
5. USC
