After four of the top eight teams lost, The Associated Press college football poll had a new look behind No. 1 Alabama, with Ohio State reaching No. 2, LSU jumping back to No. 5 and Michigan moving into the top 10 for the first time this season. 

The Crimson Tide received all but one of the 61 first-place votes from the media panel Sunday, with Ohio State receiving the other. No. 3 Clemson and No. 4 Notre Dame also moved up a spot. LSU jumped eight after handing Georgia its first loss of the season. The Bulldogs slipped from No. 2 to No. 8. 

No. 6 Michigan has its best ranking of the season after blowing out Wisconsin and Texas is up two spots to No. 7. 

No. 9 Oklahoma moved back into the top 10 while it was idle and Central Florida remained No. 10. 

LSU also climbed to #5 in the Coaches Poll.

UP NEXT FOR THE TIGERS:

No. 22 Mississippi State at No. 5 LSU. This will be the fourth ranked team the Tigers have faced - though two (Miami and Auburn) are no longer.
