NEW YORK (AP) -
No. 3 Kansas State and No. 4 Notre Dame each
moved up a spot in The Associated Press college football poll, setting
up a final 4 of sorts for the last month of the regular season.
Alabama is No. 1 for the
ninth straight week and it is unanimous. The Crimson Tide received all
60 first-place votes. Oregon is No. 2 for the sixth straight week.
Florida's 17-9 loss on
Saturday to Georgia dropped the Gators five spots to No. 8 and allowed
Kansas State and Notre Dame each to move up a spot after victories.
Now the top four are all undefeated and none will play any other the rest of the way.
LSU is No. 5, followed by Ohio State and Georgia, which moved up five spots.
