With most of the top teams merely tuning up, there was little movement in The Associated Press and USA Today college football polls released Sunday.
Alabama remained No. 1 and the first 14 teams in the AP rankings held their positions from last week. The Crimson Tide did lose some support from the media panel, dropping from 59 first-place votes last week to 56. Alabama beat Colorado State 31-6 on Saturday in a game that was 17-6 heading into the fourth quarter.
No. 2 Oregon, which didn't play, received the remaining four first-place votes. No. 4 Ohio State was one of four ranked teams to score at least 70 points on Saturday. Never before had more than two ranked teams reached 70 points on the same weekend since the rankings went to top 25 in 1989.
No. 25 Fresno State was the only team to enter the AP rankings. Arizona State dropped out.
