The latest edition of The Associated Press college football poll was released Sunday, and with six ranked teams losing Saturday, there was quite a shakeup in the AP Top 25.

Alabama remains an overwhelming No. 1 after narrowly defeating Southeastern Conference foe No. 11 Florida 31-29. The Crimson Tide received 59 of 62 first-place votes, with No. 2 Georgia receiving the other three first-place votes.

Also ranked from the SEC are No. 7 Texas A&M, No. 13 Ole Miss, No. 16 Arkansas and No. 23 Auburn. Ole Miss and Arkansas made noticeable jumps, with the Rebels and Razorbacks both moving up four spots.

No. 3 Oregon moved up one spot after defeating Stony Brook 48-7, while No. 4 Oklahoma fell one spot after a close 23-16 win over Nebraska. From the Big Ten, Iowa remains at No. 5 for the second straight week and Penn State moved up four places to No. 6 after beating then-No. 22 Auburn 28-20.

No. 20 Michigan State hops into the AP Top 25 after defeating then-24th-ranked Miami Hurricanes 38-17 to improve to 3-0. Fresno State is ranked No. 22 after beating then-No. 13 UCLA 40-37. Kansas State is off to a 3-0 start after beating Nevada 38-17 and is ranked 25th.
