The new AP Poll for CFB is officially out, and two familiar faces still reign supreme.

Those are, of course, No. 1 ranked LSU and No. 2 Alabama. In fact, the top five has remained completely the same from last week.

Both SEC teams are set to play each other next Saturday in what will most certainly be a game-of-the-year candidate.

Georgia and Florida basically switching rankings is the first noticeable change after their showdown on Saturday that ended in a victory for the Bulldogs in Gainesville.

Memphis moving up five spots to No. 19 after a down-to-the-wire victory against conference rival SMU is also noteworthy. That loss for the Mustangs was a significant blow, lowering them down to No. 23.

What might be the most shocking change of all, however, is Navy squeezing its way into the poll after a complete massacre of UConn.

With the season starting to wind down, each poll that's released becomes even more crucial for determining the Bowl game matchups.
