Alabama still No. 1 in the new AP Top 25, Oregon jumps Ohio State

After a Christion Jones-fueled 35-10 victory against Virginia Tech, Alabama begins the second week of the 2013 season at the top spot of the Associated Press Top 25.

The poll, released Tuesday, features the Crimson Tide at No. 1, with Oregon, Ohio State, Clemson and Stanford rounding out the Top 5. 

Georgia, No. 5 in the preseason poll, slid to No. 11 following their 38-35 loss to Clemson on the road. The Bulldogs must recover quickly, with their annual SEC East showdown against No. 6 South Carolina on Saturday.

Notable Moves

Washington's entry from outside the Top 25 to No. 20 following their 38-6 win against Boise State. The Broncos, ranked No. 19 in the preseason poll, fell from the Top 25. 

Nebraska fell four spots to No. 22 after squeaking out a 37-34 win against Wyoming. It was the biggest slide for any team that notched a victory in their season opener.

Hawaii might have been alarming, it has not scared voters away from putting them in the Top 25. The Trojans are hanging on at No. 25, down one spot from the preseason poll.
