NEW YORK (AP) -- After being tested for the first time this season Alabama and Oregon have held their spots at the top of The Associated Press college football poll.
A thrilling Saturday produced some great finishes but no upsets and few changes among the highest ranked teams.
Alabama, which scored late to beat LSU 21-17, is No. 1 for the 10th straight week. Oregon beat Southern California 62-51 and is No. 2 for the seventh consecutive week.
Kansas State remains at No. 3 after beating Oklahoma State 44-30, and Notre Dame stays at No. 4 after rallying to beat Pittsburgh 29-26 in triple overtime.
Ohio State and Georgia are tied for fifth.
No. 19 Texas and No. 24 Rutgers moved back into the rankings, and No. 23 Toledo is ranked for the first time since 2001.
Clemson stays put at No. 10 after dismantling Duke, and South Carolina dropped one spot to No. 11 on the Gamecocks bye week.
