Alabama takes over top spot

The Alabama Crimson Tide are now the number-1 team in the Associated Press Top-25 College Football Poll. The Tide, who are unbeaten in 9 games this season, replace Texas.

The Longhorns suffered their first loss of the season yesterday to this week's second-ranked school, Texas Tech. Like Alabama, Tech is unbeaten in nine outings, as is Penn State, the third-ranked school this week.

Alabama was a heavy favorite in the balloting of sportscasters and writers as the Tide received 46 first-place votes to 12 for Texas Tech, 6 for Penn State and 1 for fourth-ranked Florida.

The fifth-ranked team is Texas. The second five this week features Oklahoma, Southern California, Oklahoma State, Boise State and Utah.
