Well, that didn’t take long. The first week of conference play in the SEC and Big 12 produced several upsets and a few more close calls that caused considerable shuffling in the Amway Coaches Poll.

The changes didn’t reach the top, however, as Clemson easily retains the No. 1 ranking. The Tigers, who had the week off, received 42 of 48 first-place votes. No. 2 Alabama also held its spots. The Crimson Tide opened with an impressive win at Missouri and claimed four first-place nods this week.
