SEC rules: LSU, Alabama, Arkansas top AP rankings

NEW YORK — The Southeastern Conference is the second league to have the top three teams in The Associated Press college football poll.

No. 1 LSU held the top spot for the ninth straight week in the rankings released Sunday. After a weekend when three other top-five teams lost, Alabama moved up a spot to No. 2 and Arkansas jumped three places to No. 3.

The only other time in the 75-year history of The Associated Press rankings that the top three teams all came from the same conference was the final regular-season poll of 1971, when Nebraska, Oklahoma and Colorado from the Big Eight were 1-2-3.

Oklahoma State dropped from No. 2 to No. 5 after its first loss. Oregon slipped five spots, from fourth to ninth.
