The Crimson Tide had been No. 1 since the
preseason as it pursued a third consecutive national
championship. But Alabama was stunned at Auburn on Saturday,
losing 34-28 on the last play of the game.
That cleared the way for the Seminoles to be No. 1 for the first
time since Oct. 1, 2000, the season after their last national
title. Florida State received 58 first-place votes Sunday.
Auburn got two.
Ohio State received 1,418 points, while Auburn had 1,387.
Alabama fell to No. 4. No. 5 Missouri will play Auburn for the
Southeastern Conference title.
