Georgia remains No. 3 in AP college football poll

Alabama (8-0) and Penn State (7-0) , both easy winners Saturday, kept the top two spots in the Week 9 poll. Georgia (7-0) is followed by TCU, Wisconsin, Ohio State, Clemson and Miami. Notre Dame jumped six places into the top 10 at No. 9, replacing Oklahoma which dropped to No. 10, after a win over USC.

USC dropped 11 spots to No. 21 after the loss to Notre Dame and Michigan dropped 10 spots to No. 25 after the loss to Penn State.
