The top of the AP Top 25 remains mostly unchanged following Week 7, with one notable exception. Michigan has jumped Clemson for the third spot after the Tigers struggled with NC State on Saturday.

The Sooners climbed three spots to 16 after its 38-17 win Saturday over Kansas State. 

The other changes in the top 10 are Wisconsin dropping from eighth to 10th, Tennessee dropping from ninth to 18, Nebraska moving up from 10 to eighth and Baylor climbing from 11 to ninth.

The only drop bigger than Tennessee in the polls this week was by Ole Miss, down 11 spots from 12 to 23. Miami and Virginia Tech drop out of the top 25 completely after losses over the weekend, while North Carolina and LSU re-enter the top 25 in their place.
