After a relatively uneventful Week 12, there was little movement in the Associated Press Top 25.

The top nine teams in the poll — Alabama, Miami, Oklahoma, Clemson, Wisconsin, Auburn, Georgia, Ohio State and Notre Dame — stayed the same, but Oklahoma State, No. 10 last week, dropped down to No. 18 after losing to Kansas State. OSU’s drop allowed TCU, USC, Penn State, UCF, Washington State, Washington, Mississippi State and Memphis to all move up one spot, coming in at Nos. 10-17 respectively.

Elsewhere, LSU moved up two spots from No. 21 to No. 19 while Northwestern, Virginia Tech and Boise State all made their way back into the rankings at 23, 24 and 25.

As we’ve seen on a weekly basis, the AP poll usually differs quite a bit from the College Football Playoff. For instance, the CFP’s top four went Alabama, Clemson, Miami, Oklahoma last week. We’ll see what the committee has in store on Tuesday, but for now, we can parse through the AP poll.

Here’s the full 25:

1. Alabama
2. Miami
3. Oklahoma
4. Clemson
5. Wisconsin
6. Auburn
7. Georgia
8. Ohio State
9. Notre Dame
10. TCU
11. USC
12. Penn State
13. UCF
14. Washington State
15. Washington
16. Mississippi State
17. Memphis
18. Oklahoma State
19. LSU
20. Stanford
21. Michigan State
22. South Florida
23. Northwestern
24. Virginia Tech
25. Boise State
