AP Top 25 Poll - Week 8 Results

After four of the top eight teams lost on Saturday, The Associated Press Top 25 football poll looks much different on Sunday than it did 24 hours earlier.

Alabama retained the top spot after receiving 60 of 61 first-place votes. The other first-place vote went to Ohio State, which moved up one spot to No. 2. Clemson and Notre Dame avoided the upset bug and moved up to No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.

LSU defeated No. 2 Georgia and jumped to No. 5.

Michigan's blowout of Wisconsin allowed the Wolverines to climb to No. 6, followed closely by Tom Herman's Texas Longhorns.

Rounding out the Top 10 was Georgia at No. 8, Oklahoma at No. 9 and Central Florida at No. 10.

Iowa earned enough votes to make its first appearance at No. 19. Michigan State's win at Penn State opened the door for the Spartans to get back in the poll at No. 24.

Washington State rounds out the Top 25.

Miami, Colorado and Auburn fell out of the poll.
