Stanford falls and SEC gets record 8 in AP poll

The Southeastern Conference has set a record for most schools in The Associated Press college football poll with eight ranked teams.

The Top 25 was shaken Sunday after seven ranked teams lost, including five to teams that were unranked or lower ranked. Stanford dropped eight spots and Michigan fell from the poll.

The top four was unchanged, with No. 1 Alabama receiving 55 of 60 first-place votes. No. 2 is Oregon, followed by Clemson and Ohio State. Florida State moved up to No. 5 to set up a top-five matchup at Clemson next week.

Stanford lost at Utah and is now No. 13, becoming the first top-10 team this season to lose to an unranked team. Michigan drops out after losing to Penn State.
