NEW YORK — Texas and Southern California dropped out of The Associated Press college football poll after ugly losses and Miami jumped in at No. 15 after its biggest victory in a while.

Alabama was still No. 1 after an off week, heading into a much-anticipated rematch with No. 6 Texas A&M on Saturday.

Oregon was No. 2. Clemson moved up a spot to No. 3 and Ohio State slipped one to No. 4. Stanford remained No. 5.

The Longhorns came into the weekend ranked 15th, but a 40-21 loss at BYU in which Texas allowed a school-record 550 yards rushing left Mack Brown's team unranked.

Southern California was No. 25 before a 10-7 loss at home to Washington State.

Miami is ranked for the first time since November 2010.
