ESPN has updated its college football power rankings top 25 following the fourth week of the regular season.

The fourth week of the season was a wild one, with several top 25 teams losing. A couple of teams at the top, meanwhile, continued to look as dominant as ever.

Alabama, unsurprisingly, remains No. 1.

The Crimson Tide blasted a team that nearly beat Clemson two weeks ago, but coach Nick Saban can find things to correct. The Tide ran for only 109 yards, surrendered 23 points and committed nine penalties -- and still won by more than three touchdowns. Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was fantastic again, completing 22 of 30 passes for 387 yards with four scores.

Here's the full top 25:

  1. Alabama
  2. Ohio State
  3. Georgia
  4. Clemson
  5. Stanford
  6. LSU
  7. Notre Dame
  8. Penn State
  9. Oklahoma
  10. West Virginia
  11. Michigan
  12. Auburn
  13. Washington
  14. Wisconsin
  15. UCF
  16. Miami
  17. Texas
  18. Oregon
  19. Kentucky
  20. Mississippi State
  21. Colorado
  22. Syracuse
  23. Duke
  24. Michigan State
  25. BYU
