Tennessee and North Carolina State broke into the top 10 of The Associated Press college football poll Sunday, and Florida State is back in the rankings for the first time in four years.

Georgia remained No. 1 and received 55 of 63 first-place votes in the Top 25, presented by Regions Bank. No. 2 Alabama (four first-place votes), No. 3 Ohio State (four first-place votes), No. 4 Michigan and No. 5 Clemson all held their places.

Oklahoma's upset loss to Kansas State created room for teams to move up, like Southern California to No. 6 and Kentucky to No. 7.


Martinez, K-State shock No. 6 Oklahoma

No. 23 Texas A&M edges No. 10 Arkansas

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) Demani Richardson got the ball just like he wanted, and the defensive back sprinted the final 82 yards down the sideline on a wild fumble return touchdown for No. 23 Texas A&M.

"Big momentum play. That helped us a lot," Aggies running back Devon Acane said.


No. 5 Clemson tops No. 21 Wake in 2OT

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) DJ Uiagalelei kept delivering the ball on target downfield for No. 5 Clemson in a shootout with No. 21 Wake Forest.

That offered enough cover for a defense that struggled for stops - right up until finally coming up with the winning play to cap a double-overtime classic.


Hooker gets No. 11 Vols by No. 20 Gators

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Despite an upper-body injury and the absence of his favorite target, Hendon Hooker was at his best Saturday night.

The Tennessee quarterback threw for 349 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 112 yards and a score to lead the No. 11 Volunteers to a 38-33 victory over No. 20 Florida.


Miami reeling after stunning MTSU loss

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) Miami is on a two-game losing streak, plus has some major injury problems, a disgruntled fan base and quite possibly a quarterback controversy.

Texas Tech beats No. 22 Texas with OT FG

LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) Texas Tech kicker Trey Wolff had fans ready to celebrate like they hadn't in 14 years with what they thought was a game-winner in the final seconds.

Turns out they just had to wait a little longer.


Young throws 4 TDs, No. 2 'Bama wins big

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Bryce Young was flinging the ball around and his receivers were delivering big plays, just like during his Heisman Trophy run.

Young passed for a season-high 385 yards and four touchdowns and No. 2 Alabama beat Vanderbilt 55-3 Saturday night in the Southeastern Conference opener for both teams.


Stroud has 5 TDs, Buckeyes rout Badgers

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) No. 3 Ohio State is striking the right balance.

C.J. Stroud threw five touchdown passes, and both top running backs had 100-yard games as the Buckeyes blew by Wisconsin early and cruised to a 52-21 win on Saturday night.


No. 1 Georgia sloppy in win over Kent St

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) Georgia hardly looked like the nation's best team, struggling to put away Kent State.
