Alabama is still No. 1, Oregon still two and Ohio State fourth. Florida State, Missouri and Baylor took big steps forward as The Associated Press college football poll got an extensive makeover following losses by five top-10 teams.

Florida State moved up two spots to No. 3 after its 51-14 win at Clemson.

Missouri went from 14 to fifth, which is the teams best ranking since 2008. No. 6 Baylor jumped to its highest ranking since 1980.

Miami is No. 7, followed by Stanford, Clemson and Texas Tech at No. 10.

No. 21 UCF is ranked for the first time since the final 2010 poll after handing Louisville its first loss of the season.

Louisville, one of those five top-10 teams to lose, along with Clemson, UCLA, LSU and Texas A&M, slipped to 10 spots to No. 18.
