The Associated Press (AP) college football poll results show Florida State in the number one position.
The Seminoles had occupied the number-one position before Mississippi State took over in October. The Bulldogs were at the top for six weeks before they were defeated by Alabama. While the Bulldogs slid down to the fourth position, the Crimson Tide climbed up to the second position.
The media panel gave the Seminole’s 43 first-place votes, while Oregon got only one vote and Alabama obtained 16 votes. After winning against Kansas, TCU climbed up to the fifth place while Baylor occupies the fourth place.
While Ohio State has clambered up to the seventh place, Georgia, Ole Miss, and Michigan State are following it close behind. The Bovada Sportsbook has Florida State odds to win the 2014-2015 College Football FBS Championship at 6-1.
Florida State is the first team to regain its top position after first dropping out of it. Penn State had accomplished this feat back in 1997. Back in 1993, Florida State lost its preseason number-one position and still won the national title.
In 1985, Oklahoma slid down to the number two position in September. In October, it slid further down to number ten after losing a match against Miami. Later it beat Penn State, which was in the number one position, and quickly regained its number-one position.
The latest AP college football poll rankings show teams such as LSU, Clemson, and Notre Dame losing their higher positions and sliding down. In the meanwhile, Southern California, Missouri, and Oklahoma achieved higher ranks.
