NEW ORLEANS -- LSU has dropped eight spots after the team's 38-17 loss in Tuscaloosa to Alabama.

Alabama remains No. 1 in the poll, receiving 56 first-place votes from the media panel. But the other national championship contenders right behind Alabama took advantage of Oregon's loss to Stanford on Thursday night and moved up.

Florida State moves to No. 2 in the AP poll, the Seminoles' best ranking since 2000.

Florida State got the other three first-place votes. Ohio State is No. 3, followed closely by Baylor. Stanford is fifth. Oregon dropped to No. 6.

Notre Dame and Texas Tech drop out of the rankings after losses and No. 23 Texas and No. 25 Georgia move back in.

The BCS standings, which do not take into account the AP poll, will be released Sunday night and are expected to have a similar order.

The Top 25 teams in The Associated Press college football poll, with first-place votes in parentheses, records through Nov. 9, total points based on 25 points for a first-place vote through one point for a 25th-place vote, and previous ranking:
