The Southeastern Conference set a record for most schools in The Associated Press college football poll with eight ranked teams.
The Top 25 was shaken Sunday after seven ranked teams lost, including five to teams that were unranked or lower ranked. Stanford dropped eight spots and Michigan fell from the poll.
The top four was unchanged, with No. 1 Alabama receiving 55 of 60 first-place votes. No. 2 is Oregon, followed by Clemson and Ohio State. Florida State moved up to No. 5 to set up a top-five matchup at Clemson next week.
Stanford lost 27-20 at Utah and is now No. 13, becoming the first top-10 team this season to lose to an unranked team. Michigan drops out after losing 43-40 in four overtimes at Penn State.
No. 24 Auburn moved into the rankings for the first time this season to join No. 6 LSU, No. 7 Texas A&M, No. 11 South Carolina, No. 14 Missouri, No. 15 Georgia and No. 22 Florida. Missouri jumped 11 spots after a 41-26 victory at Georgia (4-2).
The record for most teams from one conference in a regular-season poll had been seven, done many times, including this season by the SEC. The ACC and Big Ten have also reached seven ranked teams in season.
The SEC also had eight teams ranked in the 2011 preseason poll.
Late Saturday games
No. 1 ALABAMA 48, KENTUCKY 7
LEXINGTON, Ky. -- T.J. Yeldon and Kenyan Drake each ran for two touchdowns to help Alabama blowout Kentucky.
After a scoreless first quarter thanks to fumbles by the running backs and dropped passes in Kentucky territory, the Crimson Tide (6-0, 3-0 Southeastern Conference) scored on their last eight possessions and outgained the Wildcats (1-5, 0-3) 668-170.
AJ McCarron shook off the handful of drops to throw for a career-high 359 yards, including a 20-yard touchdown to Kevin Norwood.
Yeldon scored from 24 and 3 yards and finished with 124 on 16 carries; Drake added 106 yards and a pair of 1-yard TDs on 14 attempts. Altee Tenpenny added a late 7-yard TD run and Cade Foster kicked field goals of 25 and 20 yards.
No. 9 TEXAS A&M 41,
OXFORD, Miss. -- Johnny Manziel threw for 346 yards, ran for two touchdowns and Texas A&M rallied to beat Mississippi.
Texas A&M's Josh Lambo made a 33-yard field goal as time expired to give the Aggies (5-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) the win. They trailed 38-31 midway through the fourth quarter, but Manziel engineered a 75-yard drive, ending with his 6-yard touchdown run to tie the game at 38 with 3:07 left.
Ole Miss (3-3, 1-3) was down 21-10 in the third quarter, but rallied thanks to two unlikely touchdown passes by backup quarterback Barry Brunetti.
Johnny Football made his usual array of spectacular plays, but also a few costly mistakes, including an interception in the end zone during the third quarter and a fumble early in the fourth. In the end, he was victorious.
No. 11 UCLA 37, CALIFORNIA 10
PASADENA, Calif. -- Brett Hundley passed for a career-high 410 yards and three touchdowns, Paul Perkins rushed for an early score, and UCLA cruised past California.
Devin Fuller, Thomas Duarte and Shaq Evans caught touchdown passes as the Bruins (5-0, 2-0 Pac-12) got ready for back-to-back road games at Stanford and Oregon by grinding out a win over their upstate UC rivals.
UCLA struggled with nine penalties and an unimpressive running game in the absence of injured tailback Jordon James, but Hundley went 31 for 41 while picking apart the Bears' injury-depleted defense.
Jared Goff passed for 215 yards in the freshman's first game since his school-record 504-yard performance for Cal (1-5, 0-3).
