Miami is back in the national conversation and back near the top of the Associated Press Top 25 college football poll.

Well, they're getting it now.

Those rankings, which are set to be released Tuesday, will undoubtedly look different and while the CFP committee does not take the AP Top 25 or Coaches Poll into consideration when determining its rankings, the significant jump Sunday could be an indication of what's to come.

The University of Miami, which blew out previously No. 3-ranked Notre Dame 41-8 on Saturday, was the biggest upward mover for Week 12, trading places with the Fighting Irish this week.

The Hurricanes have already clinched the ACC Coastal division and a place in the ACC Championship game December 2.

Wisconsin, at 10-0 one of three undefeated Power 5 teams that include Miami, is No. 4 in the coaches poll and No. 5 in the AP. It will be the final home game of the season.
