Carlos Hyde has a huge day for Ohio State, keeping the Buckeyes unbeaten with a win against Michigan.

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.
