While the No. 2 Cincinnati Bearcats (9-0), No. 3 Alabama Crimson Tide (8-1), and No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners (9-0) — which had a bye this week — all kept the same positions from Week 10’s rankings into Week 11.

No. 6 Ohio State (8-1) also kept its position this week after beating Nebraska 26-17 on the road.

The AP reports that the three teams to move into the Top 25 this week have all been there before.

No. 20 Wisconsin (6-3) is back after winning five consecutive and more than a month out of the rankings, No. 21 North Carolina State (7-2) returned to the Top 25 and No. 25 Pittsburgh (7-2) moved back in after a loss knocked the Panthers out for a week.
