Nothing changed at the top of The Associated Press Top 25 poll, which was released Sunday morning, as Alabama remained No. 1.

Clemson, which eked out a 28-26 road win against Texas A&M on Saturday, was No. 2.

Georgia and Ohio State followed at No. 3 and 4, respectively. Oklahoma moved into the fifth spot, edging past Wisconsin.

Alabama now holds the record for most weeks holding the top spot in the poll. For the 106th time, the Crimson Tide is No. 1, pushing past Ohio State.

Nearly tumbling out of the Top 25 was Michigan State, which lost to Arizona State late Saturday night. Entering play on Saturday, the Spartans were No. 15. The loss plummeted them to No. 25.

With the win, the Sun Devils are making their first appearance in the poll under new head coach Herm Edwards at No. 23.
