NEW YORK -- 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.
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. Fifth-ranked Missouri will play Auburn for the Southeastern Conference title on Saturday in Atlanta.
