LSU again drops a spot in media poll
Alabama gains all 60 first-place votes
LSU, which looked unimpressive in beating Towson State on Saturday, fell for the second consecutive week in the Associated Press media poll Sunday, dropping to fourth.
Alabama remained No. 1 gaining all 60 first-place votes for the first time this season, despite beating Mississippi 33-14 at home in a game that was within two touchdowns entering the fourth quarter.
The rest of the top 10 is dominated by four other Southeastern Conference teams. The Crimson Tide is followed by Oregon, Florida State, LSU, Georgia, South Carolina, Kansas State, West Virginia, Notre Dame and Florida.
LSU fell one spot after struggling to a 38-22 victory at home over a Football Championship Subdivision school.
The biggest improvement was Oregon State, which moved from No. 18 to No. 14 after winning at Arizona.
The biggest fall in the poll was suffered by Stanford, which dropped from No. 8 to No. 18 after losing Thursday at Washington. Falling out of the Top 25 were No. 20 Michigan State, No. 24 Boise State and No. 25 Baylor.
New to the poll this week are No. 23 Washington, No. 24 Northwestern and No. 25 UCLA, which had fallen out last week.
