NEW YORK – The Southeastern Conference has 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. Georgia and Stanford each 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.

Georgia was upset 41-26 in Athens by Missouri. The loss drops the Bulldogs to No. 15 in the new poll, one spot behind the Tigers from Columbia.

Stanford lost 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 to Penn State.
