Clemson, FSU trade TDs in nail-biter (0:44)

Clemson emerges victorious against Florida State, but the road to the W was studded with suspense and close calls. (0:44)

Alabama, Michigan, Clemson and Washington are at the top of The Associated Press Top 25 college football poll and the Big 12 was left without a top-10 team after a weekend during which four unbeaten teams lost.

Two days before the College Football Playoff selection committee unveils its first rankings of the season, the AP Top 25 provided a likely preview.

Alabama is No. 1, receiving all but one of the 61 first-place votes from the media panel. Michigan received a first-place vote. Both No. 3 Clemson and No. 4 Washington won road games against ranked teams Saturday.

West Virginia and Baylor from the Big 12 were not so fortunate. The Mountaineers slipped to No. 14 after their first loss. The Bears dropped to 13th after losing to Texas.
