The AP Top 25 for Week 11 was released Sunday afternoon and Alabama once again stays on top. The Crimson Tide received all but one vote for the No. 1 spot after freshman quarterback Jalen Hurts scored the only touchdown in Alabama’s 10-o victory over LSU.
The AP poll has been around 80 years.

The other vote went to Michigan, who holds on at No. 2 after trouncing Maryland, 59-3.
The top six remained intact from Week 10. Clemson, Washington, Louisville, and Ohio State recorded major wins, staying in front in the rankings.
Wisconsin moved up to No. 7, Auburn made it into the top 10 at No. 8 and Oklahoma moved up three slots to No. 9 after a 32-24 triumph at Iowa State.
Texas A&M faced an unexpected upset against unranked SEC foe Mississippi State. The Aggies tumbled from No. 7 to No. 10.
The Ohio State Buckeyes won in a 62-3 blowout over Nebraska. The 59-point setback caused the Cornhuskers to fall out of the top 10 to No. 21.

The Florida Gators were another team to drop significantly. Last week, the Gators checked in at No. 10, but after falling to unranked Arkansas 31-10, Florida slipped down a whopping 12 spots to No. 22. The same went for Baylor, sliding from No. 13 to No.25 this week.
The biggest leap in the poll belongs to Penn State. The Lions jumped from No. 20 to No. 12 after they thumped Iowa 41-14 on Saturday for their fifth straight win. Other teams to move up were Colorado (from No. 21 to No.16), Oklahoma State (from No. 22 to No. 17) and Virginia Tech (from No. 23 to No. 18).
No new teams entered the poll in Week 11.
