ESPN Releases Week 13 Power Rankings After Crazy Saturday

ESPN power rankings for week 13 in CFB.

Nine different top-25 teams fell in defeat, with others narrowly escaping the same fate, and both the latest Coaches' Poll and AP Poll reflected the chaos. But those weren't the only rankings to see movement - ESPN's latest Power Rankings were also shaken up in a big way. 

Michigan State went into Columbus and handed Ohio State its first loss of the season, sealing the victory with a 41-yard game-winning field goal as time expired. Oklahoma State could not hang on to its undefeated record Saturday night against a Baylor team that bounced back after a tough loss to Oklahoma the following weekend, and LSU got knocked around for the third consecutive week, as Ole Miss defended its home turf. 

Stanford, Oregon and Ole Miss made the biggest climb, each jumping seven spots after big wins. Houston had the biggest fall, dropping 12 sports from No. 13 to No. 25 after losing to UCONN, ending their undefeated streak.

Here are the rankings, via ESPN:

1. Clemson
2. Alabama
