Top four stay in place, some lose ground
(AP) — The top four teams in this week’s AP college football poll stayed the same, but some of them lost favor with voters following the first full weekend of football.
Top-ranked Florida State picked up 46 first-place votes following their tough win over Oklahoma State. No. 2 Alabama claimed just one first-place vote after failing to dominate against West Virginia.
Oregon is a close third, followed in order by Oklahoma, Auburn, Georgia, Michigan State, Ohio State, Texas A&M and Baylor. The ninth-ranked Aggies jumped 12 spots from last week after knocking off then No. 16 Clemson by 24 points.
