Alabama Leads AP Top 25, Ohio State Falls to No. 9 After Week 2

ohio-state-oregon

Alabama retained its spot atop the AP Top 25 on Sunday, but the results of Week 2 led to a shakeup in the top 10. 

Ohio State fell to No. 9 following Saturday's 35-28 home loss to Oregon. And the Buckeyes weren't the only marquee program to suffer a defeat in Week 2. Texas exited the AP Top 25 after a loss at Arkansas, while a loss to Iowa dropped Iowa State from No. 9 to No. 14.

The SEC remains the most well-represented team in the Top 25. Alabama is one of six SEC teams to be ranked after Week 2, including No. 2 Georgia and No. 7 Texas A&M. The Aggies entered Saturday at No. 5 in the country, but Jimbo Fisher's squad fell in the polls after a narrow win over Colorado.
