West Virginia, South Carolina and Texas fall, while LSU, Notre Dame and Kansas State rise in this week's AP Poll.

Alabama is the unanimous top team in the land, receiving every first-place vote in the Associated Press poll for week eight after a convincing 42-10 victory over the Missouri Tigers in Columbia. Oregon also holds on to their No. 2 spot after a bye week.

The rest of the top 10 changed significantly, with South Carolina's loss to LSU and West Virginia's loss to Texas Tech having a significant impact on the rankings. Florida took South Carolina's No. 3 spot in this week's rankings, while Kansas State and Notre Dame round out the top five of the poll. LSU jumped to No. 6, and Oregon State jumped to No. 8 after beating BYU in Provo.

For their losses, South Carolina and West Virginia fell to Nos. 9 and 17, respectively.

Falling out of the poll were Texas and Louisiana Tech, who lost to Oklahoma and Texas A&M respectively. Replacing them are Texas Tech and Ohio, who enter the poll at Nos. 18 and 25 respectively.
