    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 and No. 2 Oregon received the other five after its latest blowout. Clemson is No. 3, followed by Ohio State and Stanford.

    The Buckeyes and Cardinal were both tested Saturday night 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.

    No. 23 Northern Illinois, No. 24 Virginia Tech and No. 25 Missouri moved into the rankings for the first time this season. Arizona State, Mississippi and Maryland dropped out.
