NEW YORK (WAFB) - There is a new No. 1 team in both major college football polls after the previous top team in the land fell in a matchup featuring two teams ranked in the top five in the country.

Notre Dame was triumphant over Clemson, 47-40, in double overtime. The loss dropped the Tigers three notches, while the Fighting Irish jumped just one spot. The outcome also opened the door for Alabama to move up to No. 1 in the rankings. The Crimson Tide was on a bye week and will travel to Baton Rouge next weekend to face LSU in Tiger Stadium.

The Louisiana-Lafayette Ragin Cajuns have moved back into the top 25 in the AP Poll.
