AP Top 25: Ohio State to No. 3 after Baylor's loss at Oklahoma State
Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State, Auburn, Missouri, Clemson, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Baylor and South Carolina are in the new AP college football poll.
Week 14 didn't exactly provide the drama of previous November weekends, but it did include a shake up in the Top 5 that has reset the conference race in the Big 12. Oklahoma State dominated Baylor in Stillwater, jumping up to No. 7 after the 49-17 win. The Bears fell to No. 9, and now need help in order to win the league's automatic BCS bid.
Oregon also lost its inside track to the Rose Bowl after a 42-16 loss at Arizona, dropping to No. 12 in the polls. No. 8 Stanford clinched a spot in the Pac-12 title game after a win against Cal, while No. 13 Arizona State held off UCLA and will face the Cardinal for a bid to the Rose Bowl.
No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Florida State and No. 3 Ohio State all cruised to victory, and No. 5 Missouri picked up a key win at Ole Miss to stay in front of the SEC East.
