Alabama football is still the No. 1 team in the nation following its 42-13 win over Auburn on Saturday, according to the latest Amway Coaches Poll and AP Top 25.

The Crimson Tide maintained its 59 first-place votes in the week 13 edition of the latest Amway poll, the same margin that it held over Notre Dame last week. Alabama received all 62 of the first-place votes in the AP poll, also the same as last week.

The Fighting Irish still have the second-most first-place votes in the Amway with two. Ohio State holds the last first-place vote.

The only shakeup in the top 10 of the Amway poll this week is between Clemson and Ohio State. Last week, the Buckeyes were in third place despite only having played four games. With Ohio State's game against Illinois this past Saturday being cancelled, Clemson jumped up to third after defeating Pitt 52-17.

Other than that, the top 10 is exactly the same as last week in the Amway Coaches Poll.

Alabama, Notre Dame, Ohio State and Clemson round out the top four in the AP Top 25, the same order as last week.
