The Ducks take the top spot in the AP poll after Alabama faltered on Saturday.

The Oregon Ducks moved into the top spot of the AP Top 25 for Week 12, after Alabama suffered an upset at the hands of Texas A&M on Saturday. The Crimson Tide didn't fall far in the rankings, and are now in position as the top one-loss team at No. 4. The Aggies jumped to No. 9 after their impressive win in Tuscaloosa.

Kansas State is at No. 2, as they had little trouble with TCU on the road. The Notre Dame Fighting Irish are on the outside looking in as an undefeated No. 3. Georgia rounds out the top five.

Ohio State dropped to No.6 after being tied with Georgia for the fifth spot last week. Florida and LSU are Nos. 7 and 8, while Florida State completes the top 10.

The Kent State Golden Flashes appear at No. 25. This is the first time the school has been ranked since 1973, according the AP's Ralph Drusso.
