College football rankings, Week 14: Idle Tigers keep moving up

John Reed-USA TODAY Sports

Auburn is a top-five team. Let that sink in.

Even following an off week, Auburn's rise up the rankings continues. The Tigers are ranked No. 4 in this week's Associated Press Top 25 and No. 5 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll and Harris Poll, up two spots in all three sets of rankings.

That means this year's Iron Bowl will be a top-five matchup. As expected, Alabama is still No. 1 across the board. Second-ranked Florida State, third-ranked Ohio State and fifth-ranked Missouri round out the top five in the AP poll. In the coaches' poll and Harris, FSU is No. 2, OSU is No. 3 and Clemson is No. 4.
