LSU locks up No. 1, Oklahoma State jump to 2 in AP college football poll

NEW YORK — LSU put a lock on the top spot, Oklahoma State moved up to No. 2 for the best ranking in school history, and Alabama slipped to No. 4 in The Associated Press Top 25 poll after losing a 1 vs. 2 showdown against the Tigers.

LSU received 59 out of 60 first-place votes Sunday after beating the Crimson Tide 9-6 in overtime in Tuscaloosa, Ala., the night before.

Oklahoma State moved up one spot after a wild 52-45 victory against Kansas State and Stanford also inched up to No. 3.

Alabama slipped two spots. Boise State remained No. 5 with one first-place vote.

LSU, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Boise State and No. 11 Houston are the remaining unbeaten teams in major college football. The Cougars (9-0) have their best ranking in the AP poll since 1991.

The rest of the top 10 was No. 6 Oregon, followed by Oklahoma, Arkansas, Clemson and Virginia Tech.

After Houston was Penn State at No. 12, Michigan State, Georgia and South Carolina at No. 15.

No. 16 was Wisconsin, followed by Kansas State, Nebraska, Southern California and Georgia Tech at No. 20.

The final five were Texas, which moved back into the rankings for the second time this season, Michigan, Cincinnati, Auburn and No. 25 Southern Mississippi.

Southern Miss is ranked for the first time since 2004.

Falling out after losses were Arizona State and West Virginia.
