After a quiet week on the upset and big-game front, my Associated Press top 25 ballot doesn't look very different:

1. Alabama
2. Ohio State
3. Oregon
4. Stanford
5. Clemson
6. LSU
7. Oklahoma State
8. Louisville
10. Georgia
11. Florida State
12. Baylor
13. Miami
14. Michigan
15. Texas A&M
16. South Carolina
17. Oklahoma
18. Washington
19. Florida
20. Ole Miss
21. Notre Dame
21. Northern Illinois
23. Northwestern
24. Texas Tech
25. Central Florida

- Nobody that was on my ballot last week lost. So there was very little movement on my ballot.

- Michigan, which struggled to beat UConn, drops a couple spots on my ballot. Baylor and Miami, which leapfrogged the Wolverines, just look better at this point.

- Ole Miss moved ahead of Notre Dame, which barely beat Michigan State - not a bad win, but Notre Dame's lone loss is to Michigan, so that's not looking as strong anymore.

- There should be plenty of movement next week: Georgia vs. LSU, Ole Miss vs. Alabama, and perhaps a few upsets, unlike this week.
