AP Top 25 poll: Georgia holds on to No. 1; Bama up to No. 3

The Georgia Bulldogs, who were on a bye this week, held on to the No. 1 spot in the Associated Press Top 25 poll released Sunday.

Georgia (7-0) is a unanimous No. 1 (63 first-place votes) for the third straight week and faces Florida this Saturday in Jacksonville, Fla.

Cincinnati (7-0), which held off Navy 27-20 on Saturday, remained at No. 2. Alabama (7-1), which routed Tennessee 52-24, moved up a spot to No. 3.

Despite beating Kansas 35-23 on Saturday, Oklahoma (8-0) dropped a spot to No. 4. Meanwhile, Ohio State (6-1) remains at No. 5 following its 54-7 rout at Indiana.

Michigan (7-0) stayed put at No. 6 after beating Northwestern 33-7. Oregon (6-1) jumped three spots to No. 7 after its 34-31 victory over UCLA. Michigan State (7-0) and Iowa (6-1) — which were both idle — and Ole Miss (6-1) — a 31-17 winner against LSU on Saturday — round out the Top 10.

Two teams dropped out of the Top 10. Oklahoma State (6-1) fell from No. 8 to No. 15 following its 24-21 loss at Iowa State. Penn State plummeted all the way from No. 7 to No. 20 after its 20-18 nine-overtime loss to Illinois, the longest game in CFB history in terms of overtimes.

Iowa State (5-2) re-entered the poll at No. 22 following its victory over Oklahoma State. Coastal Carolina (6-1) fell from No. 14 to No. 24 after its 30-27 loss at Appalachian State on Wednesday.

The Top 25 contains three additional undefeated teams: No. 13 Wake Forest (7-0), No. 21 San Diego State (6-0) and No. 23 UTSA (8-0).

No. 25 BYU (6-2) also rejoined the poll. Purdue and North Carolina State dropped out.
