Meanwhile, the No. 1 team in the standings, the Alabama Crimson Tide, coasted to a 40-7 win over the Florida Atlantic Owls.

Outside the top three, Florida State stayed in the No. 4 spot after a 49-37 triumph over Clemson, and Georgia remained at No. 5 with a 48-3 pummeling of Vanderbilt. The No. 6 spot was taken by South Carolina, who saw off Missouri 31-10.

Elsewhere in the AP College Football Poll, No. 10 Notre Dame moved into the top ten for the first time since 2006.
