College Football Rankings, Week 12: Movement at the top

Mike Zarrilli

Alabama goes down and suffers in the AP Top 25 poll.

For the first time this season, Alabama is not No. 1 on the AP Top 25 poll.

Oregon is the new No. 1 after spending time at the No. 2 spot. Kansas State is second, Notre Dame is third and Alabama shifts to No. 4 after losing to Texas A&M on Saturday.

Georgia rounds out the top five.

There are only four undefeated teams remaining: Oregon, Kansas State, Notre Dame and Ohio State, which ranks sixth on the AP Top 25 poll.

No local teams earned votes in this week's poll.

Here is this week's AP Top 25:
