Alabama, Notre Dame remain 1-2 in AP Top 25

Alabama remained No. 1 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, released Sunday, after a week that saw 15 games postponed or canceled because of the coronavirus pandemic.

In fact, the top eight remained unchanged, and Wisconsin (2-0) of the Big Ten eeked into the top 10.

Following idle Alabama (6-0) was Notre Dame (8-0), a winner over Boston College, then Ohio State (3-0), Clemson (7-1) and Texas A&M (5-1). All three were idle.

The Crimson Tide received 60 of 62 first-place votes, with the Fighting Irish and the Buckeyes each gaining one.

Rounding out the top 10 were Florida (5-1), Cincinnati (7-0). BYU (8-0), Indiana (4-0) and Wisconsin (2-0).

For the Hoosiers, who posted a decisive shutout win over Michigan State, this is their highest ranking in more than 50 years. They were No. 4 on Nov. 27, 1967. That was the last month they were in the top 10 in consecutive weeks, as well.

Indiana will face No. 3 Ohio State on Saturday in a battle for control of the Big Ten East division.

Dropping out of the top 10 was Miami (7-1), which fell three spots to No. 12 after edging Virginia Tech 25-24 on Saturday.

The biggest climber of the week was Northwestern (4-0), which rose from No. 23 to 19.

Tulsa (4-1) moved into the No. 25 spot. It is the school’s first time in the rankings since 2010.

SMU (7-2), which was No. 19, dropped out of the poll after the 28-24 loss to the Golden Hurricane.
