The top five in The Associated Press college football poll has been rearranged for a second straight week, with Florida, Kansas State and Notre Dame moving up in the rankings.
No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon hold the top two spots for a fourth straight week. The changes came behind them, where the Gators move up one spot to No. 3, and the fourth-ranked Wildcats and fifth-ranked Fighting Irish both jump two places.
The shuffling comes after a second straight Saturday in which multiple top-five teams lost. South Carolina fell 23-21 at LSU on Saturday night and drops from No. 3 to No. 9.
West Virginia slides from No. 5 to No. 17 after getting routed 49-14 at Texas Tech. The Red Raiders move into the rankings at 18th.
Georgia and Clemson both climbed the poll in their bye weeks. The Bulldogs are up one spot to No. 13. The Tigers are up two to No. 14.
With a 7-0 start, Ohio enters the rankings at No. 25. The Bobcats haven't been in the top 25 since the final poll of the 1968 season.
