Week 6 AP Top 25, Alabama moves to #8

UNDATED (AP) – Ohio State remains the top team in the weekly Associated Press Top 25 poll. From there things changed quite a bit from last week’s poll. After surviving a close game with Purdue, Michigan State, the second-ranked team last week, fell to No. 4. That paved the way for TCU to move to the No. 2 spot with Baylor No. 3. Rounding out the top is Utah.

The second five this week features Clemson at No. 6 followed by LSU, Alabama, Texas A&M and Oklahoma.

After four top-10 teams lost on Saturday, the rankings were rattled and five teams received first-place votes. The Buckeyes received 38 first-place votes, their fewest this season after beginning as the first unanimous preseason No. 1. TCU has five first-place votes, Baylor received 10, Utah has seven and No. 9 Texas A&M has one.

The Buckeyes held off Indiana 34-27 on Saturday and have now been top-ranked 101 times, matching Oklahoma for the most in the 79-year history of the media poll.
