There was no change at the top.

Alabama remained No. 1, followed by Oregon, Florida State and Mississippi State in the College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday night.

In fact, there was no change in the top seven.

“This has been a week of stability in the rankings, especially at the top. Given the way the games were played over the past week, there was very little change,” selection chairman Jeff Long said in a release. “As important as the rankings are at the top, I want to continue to emphasize we focus on all 25. Our job is to rank 1-25, and we take that very seriously. We spend a great deal of time talking about each team that we rank.”

Georgia moved up one spot from No. 10 to No. 9 heading into Saturday’s game against No. 16 Georgia Tech.

Ole Miss, which lost to Arkansas, fell from eighth to No. 19.

Boise State (No. 23) and Marshall (No. 24) moved into the poll.

The final rankings will be announced on Dec. 7.
