AP Top 25 Poll: Alabama Reclaims No. 1; Georgia Slips to No. 3


Alabama will head into the postseason the same way it started the regular season — as No. 1 in the nation.

The Crimson Tide reclaimed the top spot in The Associated Press college football poll after beating previously top-ranked Georgia.

Defending national champion Alabama, which was No. 1 for the first six weeks of this season, jumped three spots after dominating the Southeastern Conference title game.

The Bulldogs fell to No. 3. In between, Michigan was No. 2 for a second straight week after winning the Big Ten Conference championship for the first time since 2004. Cincinnati slipped a spot to No. 4.

The Bearcats are the only remaining unbeaten FBS team in the country.
