Alabama inched up to No. 3 in The Associated Press college football Sunday behind top-ranked Georgia and No. 2 Cincinnati.

The Bulldogs (63 first-place votes) are a unanimous No. 1 for the third straight week in the latest AP Top 25 presented by Regions Bank, and the Bearcats remain second.

The Crimson Tide jumped up a spot past Oklahoma after blowing out Tennessee. The now fourth-ranked Sooners were shut out in the first half against Kansas before scoring 35 in the second half and pulling away late.


Illini upset PSU in NCAA's 1st 9OT game

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) Over the course of an unprecedented nine overtimes, Illinois survived Penn State's botched attempt at a trick play, lost its quarterback and a powerful running back to injury, and failed to gain just three measly yards again and again.

When Casey Washington finally came down with the winning catch Saturday, he hardly knew what to do.


No. 2 Cincinnati holds on to beat Navy

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell could tolerate his team's slow start, and he may have expected some issues defending Navy's triple-option offense.

What was more grating was the fact No. 2 Cincinnati took a double-digit lead in the second half and then had to hold on late for the win.


No. 3 Oklahoma avoids upset at Kansas

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) Facing a far tougher test than expected against Kansas, Caleb Williams bailed out No. 3 Oklahoma with quick feet and quick thinking.

ISU makes late stand, tops No. 8 Cowboys

AMES, Iowa (AP) Iowa State is back in its familiar October form and right in the thick of the Big 12 race again.

Young totals 4 TDs, No. 4 Tide beat Vols

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) Alabama players once again got to light up those celebratory cigars after another win over border rival Tennessee.

Ducks' Dye has TDs on 4 straight rushes

PASADENA, Calif. (AP) Travis Dye became the first player in Football Bowl Subdivision history to score touchdowns on four consecutive carries and No. 10 Oregon overcame an early 14-point deficit to beat UCLA 34-31 on Saturday.

Anthony Brown had 381 yards of total offense for the Ducks (6-1, 3-1 Pac-12) against the Bruins (5-3, 3-2).


No. 5 OSU wins 27th straight vs. Indiana

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) C.J. Stroud and TreVeyon Henderson provided Ohio State's offense with a refreshingly familiar look Saturday.

Even a persistently rainy night couldn't derail the Buckeyes' two big stars.


Williams helps No. 13 ND hold off USC

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (AP) Kyren Williams and No. 13 Notre Dame's offensive line took a big step forward Saturday night, withstanding Southern California's fourth-quarter rally for a 31-16 victory.

With fellow running back Chris Tyree sidelined by turf toe, Williams had two short touchdown runs and a season-high 138 yards on 25 carries for coach Brian Kelly's 6-1 team, and after the game saluted his offensive linemen for his performance.


No. 6 Michigan rolls; Spartans up next

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Michigan got off to a sluggish start, perhaps peeking ahead to playing Michigan State. Then the Wolverines used a strong finish to seal a matchup of undefeated rivals.

Blake Corum and Hassan Haskins combined for 229 yards rushing and four touchdowns, carrying No. 6 Michigan to a 33-7 win over Northwestern on Saturday.
