Alabama stays No. 1 in AP top 25 rankings – Oct.21

NEW YORK (Sporting Alert) – As expected, Alabama retained its No. 1 position in the latest release of the Associated Press top 25 college football rankings on Sunday.

Alabama crushed Tennessee 44-13 in the one-sided contest on Saturday night to leave the raters with no other choice but to select them to extend its No. 1 streak at No. 1 to a school record of eight.

The Crimson Tide picked 59 of the 60 first-place votes for a total of 1,499 points from a nationwide media panel.

Oregon, which also registered an easy victory in Week 8, a comfortable 43-21 Arizona State on Thursday – remained the No. 2 program in the country, while Florida got one first place vote and collected 1380 points for No. 3.

Kansas State and Notre Dame completed the top five for a second successive week. All teams in the top five are on undefeated with 7-0 records.

Completing the second five and top ten are LSU, Oregon State, Oklahoma, Ohio State and USC.

The Oklahoma Sooners moved up two places from 10th to 8th, following its easy 52-7 victory over Kansas.

Cincinnati, which started last week at No. 21 dropped out the rankings, following a disappointing 29-23 defeat to Toledo.
