New York • For the fourth straight week, the top five teams in The Associated Press college football poll are unchanged, led by No. 1 Alabama.

The top-ranked Crimson Tide received 55 of 60 first-place votes after an easy victory over Georgia State, and No. 2 Oregon received the other five after its latest blowout, 57-16 over Colorado. Clemson is No. 3, followed by Ohio State and Stanford.

The Buckeyes and Cardinal were both tested Saturday and stayed unbeaten. Ohio State rallied to win at Northwestern, 40-30. The Wildcats slipped three spots to No. 19.

Stanford held off Washington 31-28. The Huskies dropped only one spot to No. 16. The Huskies outgained the Cardinal offensively by 205 yards.

Washington showed anybody who stayed up late that this is not a team destined for a fourth straight 7-6 season under coach Steve Sarkisian.
