NCAAF: AP Top 25 poll: Georgia moves to No. 1 for first time since ’08

Georgia moved to No. 1 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll for the first time since 2008 on Sunday — the result of its dominating win over Auburn and Alabama’s loss to unranked Texas A&M this weekend.

Georgia (6-0) captured all 62 first-place votes to take over the top spot after five weeks at No. 2. Moving up one place and into that spot was Iowa (6-0) for its highest ranking in the poll since it reached No. 1 in 1985.

Taking over at No. 3 was Cincinnati (5-0), with the Bearcats achieving their highest-ever ranking. They were followed by Oklahoma (6-0), which came from behind Saturday to beat Texas 55-48 in their annual rivalry game.

Alabama (5-1) fell to No. 5 after its 41-38 loss to the Aggies.

After an impressive 66-17 win over Maryland, Ohio State (5-1) moved up a spot to No. 6, joining Iowa as another of the five Big Ten programs in the Top 10. Following the Buckeyes were Penn State (5-1), Michigan (6-0), Oregon (4-1) and Michigan State (6-0).

The Spartans moved into the Top 10 for the first time this season.

Dropping out of the Top 10 was BYU, which plummeted nine spots after its 26-17 loss Saturday to unranked Boise State.

The Top 25 contains six additional undefeated teams: No. 11 Kentucky (6-0), No. 12 Oklahoma State (5-0), No. 15 Coastal Carolina (6-0), No. 16 Wake Forest (6-0) No. 23 SMU (6-0) and No. 24 San Diego State (5-0).

With its win over Alabama, Texas A&M (4-2) moved back into the poll at No. 21. Auburn, previously No. 18, dropped out after the 34-10 loss to Georgia.
