New York, NY (Sports Network) - Alabama survived a marquee matchup with Texas A&M to remain the top team in the latest Associated Press college football poll.

The Crimson Tide fended off a late comeback bid by the Aggies and escaped College Station with a 49-42 victory on Saturday. Alabama received 59 first- place votes, two more than last week, and a total of 1,499 points from a nationwide media panel.

Texas A&M fell four spots to No. 10 following the loss.

The top five stayed the same, with Alabama again followed by Oregon, Clemson, Ohio State and Stanford. The Ducks received the other first-place vote.

LSU and Florida State each climbed two spots, with the schools sandwiching No. 7 Louisville. Georgia stayed put at No. 9.

The second 10 consists of Oklahoma State, South Carolina, UCLA, Oklahoma, Michigan, Miami-Florida, Washington, Northwestern, Florida and Baylor.

The last five teams ranked this week are Ole Miss, Notre Dame, Arizona State, Wisconsin and Texas Tech. Both the Sun Devils and Red Raiders are new additions to the poll.
