Week 10 Poll Breakdown: ACC & Big 12

A great weekend of college football saw a few shake-ups among
ranked ACC and Big 12 teams. Thanks to a 23-13 victory over Florida
State, the Clemson Tigers are the new AP No. 1. Another big winner was
Oklahoma State, who jumped into the top-5 after beating TCU by 20 in
Stillwater. No teams in the Big 12 and ACC fell out of the polls and no
new teams entered.
