Horns Leap Sooners In A.P. Poll

By  | 

NEW YORK (AP) - Alabama and Florida will head into Saturday's
SEC championship game ranked one and two, respectively.
The top-ranked Crimson Tide and second-ranked Gators held their
spots in this week's AP Top 25, setting up the 41st game matching
the highest ranked teams in the AP poll.
The winner of Saturday's game is virtually guaranteed a spot in
the BCS national championship game in Miami on Jan. 8.
The 12-and-0 Crimson Tide received 62 first-place votes from the
media panel. The Gators received three first-place votes, one more
than last week.
No. 3 Texas slips past No. 4 Oklahoma in the latest rankings, a
week after the Sooners had jumped over the Longhorns.
The A.P. Poll plays no part in choosing the Big XII South champ.
No. 5 Southern California and No. 6 Penn State held their spots.
Undefeated Utah jumped over Texas Tech into the No. 7 spot while
the Red Raiders dropped to No. 8 after rallying to beat Baylor
35-28 at home.
No. 9 and unbeaten Boise State and Ohio State round out the top
10.
No. 19 Missouri dropped seven spots after losing 40-37 to
Kansas.
