(TSX / STATS) -- Michigan dropped out of the Top 25 for the first time in two years, while Notre Dame jumped into the top 10 for the first time this season in the Associated Press college football poll released Sunday.

No major upsets shook up college football this weekend, as the top eight teams remain unchanged from last week.

Alabama, which beat Tennessee 45-7, remains a unanimous No. 1 in this week's media poll. This is the 98th time Alabama is ranked No. 1, tying Notre Dame at No. 3 on the all-time list.

(TSX / STATS) -- TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It took a little while for Alabama to flex its muscles against Tennessee, but the Crimson Tide eventually showed why they are the No. 1 team in the nation.

Alabama recorded nearly 500 more yards than the Volunteers and extended its winning streak over Tennessee to 11 with a 45-7 victory on Saturday afternoon at Bryant-Denny Stadium.


No. 13 Irish rout error-prone No. 11 USC

(TSX / STATS) -- SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly scrawled a note to himself before Saturday's game against USC, writing that anything but a decisive win against a longtime rival would be a disappointment.

(TSX / STATS) -- MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. -- It wasn't a last-second, do-or-die win as had been the case the previous two weeks in victories over Florida State and Georgia Tech. But the win was dramatic enough in its own way for No. 8 Miami on Saturday.

With just over five minutes left in the game, the Hurricanes were backed up at their 15-yard line, clinging to a one-point lead with momentum seemingly swinging Syracuse's way.
