Auburn Falls Out of AP Top 25 with Iron Bowl Loss; Alabama Still Number One
Alabama is the unanimous No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll again as the top eight teams in the rankings held steady for the fourth week in a row.
Auburn dropped out of the poll from its previous No. 22 position after losing to Alabama 42-13 in the Iron Bowl in Tuscaloosa.
The Crimson Tide got 62 first-place votes for the second consecutive week and are followed by No. 2 Notre Dame, No. 3 Ohio State and No. 4. Clemson. Texas A&M and Florida are fifth and sixth, respectively.
