SEC teams ranked in Top 25 after Week 1 action

No. 2 Ohio State was the only other team with a first-place vote (one). MI also moved into the Top 10 from No. 11 after beating Florida, which fell from No. 17 to No. 22 after that loss.

In the latest AP Top 25 released Tuesday afternoon, Alabama, the preseason No. 1 that knocked off No. 3 Florida State Saturday night, maintained its stranglehold on the top spot.

MI ultimately hurdles three teams in the latest polls: Wisconsin (stays put at No. 9), Florida State (goes from No. 3 to No. 10), and Oklahoma State (goes from No. 10 to No. 11). The Buckeyes held firm at No. 2 while defending champion Clemson ascended two spots to No. 3 following its 56-3 rout of Kent State.

Washington and USC both started the season with wins but dropped in our rankings, a reaction to their early-game struggles with Rutgers and Western Michigan, respectively.

Michigan, which overcame a halftime deficit to post a 33-17 victory over Florida, moved to No. 8 while Wisconsin and Florida State round out the top 10. LSU is 12th in the coaches' poll, followed by Auburn at No. 13, Georgia at No. 15, Tennessee at No. 21 and Florida at No. 25. Louisville 18. Virginia Tech 19.

Texas, which was No. 23 last week, fell out of the poll after dropping a 51-41 decision to Maryland.
