Texas takes the top spot in AP poll, Bama No. 2

NEW YORK (AP) - Texas rode its resounding Red River Rivalry upset right to No. 1.  The Longhorns leapfrogged No. 2 Alabama on Sunday and sit atop The Associated Press Top 25 in the regular season for the first time in 24 years after beating Oklahoma 45-35.

Texas' jump to No. 1 is the largest since Miami went from No. 6 to No. 1 on Aug. 29, 1988, after beating preseason top-ranked Florida State 31-0 to start the season.

Texas received 39 first-place votes and 1,599 points from the media panel. Alabama received the other 36 first-place votes and 1,582 points.

Auburn dropped out of the Top 25 after losing its third game of the season.
