The AP and Coaches’ Polls aren’t the only rankings that are updated on a weekly basis. CBS Sports has its own top 25.

Dennis Dodd produces his set of rankings every week, and they usually differentiate a bit from the two major polls. This week, he's had to make some adjustments in his top 10 due to the results of a few games.

Georgia's win over Notre Dame boosted the Bulldogs two spots while dropping the Fighting Irish out of the top 10. Michigan is also out of the top 10, with Wisconsin taking their spot after thrashing the Wolverines.

Texas moved up three spots after taking down Oklahoma State, while the top three of Clemson, Alabama and LSU remain unchanged.

Here is Dodd's top 10.

  1. Clemson
  2. Alabama
  3. LSU
  4. Georgia
  5. Ohio State
  6. Oklahoma
  7. Texas
  8. Florida
  9. Wisconsin
  10. Auburn

Beyond the top 10, Utah and Michigan plummeted while Washington and USC made their returns to the rankings. The Huskies and Trojans will actually meet this Saturday.

Virginia and Notre Dame is also one of the highlights of the Week 5 schedule across the country.
