Alabama has run its streak of weeks at No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll to eight, the longest stay atop the rankings by the Crimson Tide. Ohio State, despite a thrilling come-from-behind victory over Purdue, dropped two spots to 9 in the poll. Ohio University jumped up to 23 in the latest poll. Alabama received 59 of 60 first-place votes from the media panel. The Tide has twice previously been No. 1 for seven consecutive weeks -- in 1979 when Bear Bryant coached Bama to a national title and in 1980 when the Tide finished sixth. Oregon is No. 2 for the fifth consecutive week, though the gap between the Ducks and No. 3 Florida, which received the other first-place vote, narrowed after the Gators beat South Carolina 44-11 on Saturday. Alabama had gone three straight weeks as unanimous No. 1. The rest of the top six was also unchanged after No. 4 Kansas State, No. 5 Notre Dame and No. 6 LSU all won. South Carolina dropped from ninth to No. 17.
