NEW YORK — Florida State, Baylor and Missouri took big steps forward as The Associated Press college football poll got extensive makeover following losses by five top-10 teams.

Alabama is still No. 1, Oregon still two and Ohio State fourth, but otherwise there was much movement.

Florida State moved up two spots to No. 3 after its big win at Clemson, which fell from third to No. 9.

The Crimson Tide received 55 first-place votes from the media panel. Oregon got three first-place votes and Florida State received two.

The Seminoles received first-place votes for the first time since Sept. 2, 2002.

Missouri went from 14 to fifth, its best ranking since 2008.

No. 6 Baylor jumped to its highest ranking since 1980. Miami is No. 7, followed by Stanford, and Texas Tech is No. 10.
