Alabama climbs to No. 1

NEW YORK -- Alabama is the new No. 1 in the Associated Press college football poll, moving past Southern California after its resounding victory against Michigan.

Michigan plummeted from No. 8 to No. 19 with the loss. Ohio State moved up from No. 18 to No. 14 by beating Miami.

The Crimson Tide swayed more than enough voters with its 41-14 win Saturday night in Texas to overtake the preseason No. 1 Trojans, who beat Hawaii 49-10. USC entered that game a 40-point favorite at home.

The Tide received 45 first-place votes, up 28 from last week. USC drew 11 first-place votes. It's the 47th time Alabama has been No. 1.
