After three weeks out of the top slot, Alabama is back at No. 1.

Georgia, which moved into the No. 1 slot after Alabama had a close call with Texas in early September, struggled past Missouri, 26-22, on Saturday. Meanwhile, Alabama dispatched Arkansas in Fayetteville to reclaim its top ranking.

Ohio State held steady at No. 3 with a victory over Rutgers. Clemson at No. 4 and Michigan at No. 5, both won, but swapped places from a week ago.

Another major development was Ole Miss’ home victory over Kentucky, which allowed the Rebels to vault to No. 10 from No. 14 of a week ago. Kentucky fell from ninth to No. 15 in the current poll.

Oklahoma, No.16 last week, fell out of the poll for the first time since Oct. 23, 2016, after dropping a second straight Big 12 Conference game, this time to TCU by 31 points. The unbeaten Horned Frogs at No. 13 are making their first appearance in the poll this season along with No. 14 UCLA, which beat Washington. Unbeaten Kansas is making its first appearance in the history of the poll at No.16.

North Carolina State fell out of the poll after its loss to Clemson as did Washington after losing to UCLA.

The SEC led all leagues with five teams followed by the Pac-12 with four, The Big Ten and Big 12 had three each and the ACC had one.

ABOUT THE FWAA-NFF SUPER 16 POLL:
The FWAA-NFF Super 16 Poll was established at the conclusion of the 2013 season by long-time partners, the Football Writers Association of America (FWAA) and the National Football Foundation (NFF). Voters rank the top 16 teams in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, and the results will be released every Sunday of the 2022 season; the individual votes of all members will also be made public. The first regular season poll will be released on Tuesday, Sept. 6 (to account for Labor Day games), and the final poll will be released Sunday, Dec. 4. The pollsters consist of FWAA writers and College Football Hall of Famers who were selected to create a balanced-geographical perspective. The poll utilizes a computer program designed by Sports Systems, a TicketManager company, to compile the rankings.
