NEW YORK (AP) — Florida State is the new No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll, followed by Ohio State at No. 2 and No. 3 Auburn, which shook up the national title race by upsetting Alabama.

The Crimson Tide had been No. 1 since the preseason as it pursued a third consecutive national championship. But Alabama was stunned at Auburn on Saturday, losing 34-28 on the last play of the game.

That cleared the way for the Seminoles to be No. 1 for the first time since Oct. 1, 2000, the season after their last national title. Florida State received 58 first-place votes Sunday. Auburn got two.

Ohio State received 1,418 points, while Auburn had 1,387.

Alabama fell to No. 4. No. 5 Missouri will play Auburn for the Southeastern Conference title.

Last night's bama/auburn game was one of the most compelling games I have seen.  Everything that makes college football great was encompassed in that game, and then some.

If it is FSU and OSU for the title game, I will not watch.  They are two teams I have always despised.

I won't miss it. Love OSU since Woody Hayes was coach. Hating OSU has been in vogue for a long time, but we fans don't mind.   ^-^

The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open."

If only FSU didn't have a rapist at QB ...
