Arizona St. is the last team left out of the AP Top 25 after a 5-1 start, while Alabama is still No. 1.

Alabama is still No. 1 in the nation. Their dominating win over Missouri kept them atop the newest AP Top 25, which Arizona State just barely missed out on. The Sun Devils are the last team left out of the rankings, checking in at an unofficial No. 26.

The Sun Devils didn't look great in a Thursday night win over lowly Colorado, but they turned it on in the second half and turned a three-point lead into a 51-17 win.

Undefeated Ohio is No. 25 with 104 points received, so Arizona State is right on their tails with 92 points.

Alabama collected all 60 first-place votes, leaving Oregon a healthy 64 points behind the Tide at No. 2.

Losses by former No. 3 South Carolina and former No. 5 West Virginia opened up space in the top five, allowing Florida, Kansas St. and Notre Dame to move in.
