The AP college football rankings hit on Sept. 15 and the top five teams remained the same, although the Alabama Crimson Tide gained more first place votes to cement their spot at the top of the rankings.
Alabama beat SEC rival Texas A&M and ended up with 59 of the week's first place votes, while the Ohio State Buckeyes, who started the season in second, lost all their first place votes and remain stuck in fourth place behind both Oregon and Clemson. Stanford rounds out the top five.
The Oregon Ducks received the only other first place vote in the AP college football rankings.
The rest of the top 10 include LSU, Louisville, Florida State, Georgia and Texas A&M. With Clemson beating Georgia and Alabama beating Texas A&M, there are two teams in the top 10 with losses on their records.
Nebraska and TCU both dropped out of the Top 25, with the Cornhuskers losing big to 13th ranked UCLA and TCU dropping to formerly un-ranked Texas Tech. Also new to the AP poll this week is Arizona State, who debuts at 23rd after beating Wisconsin.
