New York, NY - Alabama, Florida State and Ohio State -- the lone unbeaten teams from power conferences -- are the top three teams in the latest Associated Press college football poll. Baylor had been a member of that club before a 49-17 pasting at the hands of Oklahoma State on Saturday. Alabama, as it has been all season, resides at the top. The Crimson Tide, after a 49-0 romp over Chattanooga on Saturday, received 56 first-place votes -- one more than last week -- and a total of 1,496 points from a nationwide media panel. Florida State lost one No. 1 tally from last week, but held firmly at No. 2 with four first-place votes. The Seminoles also had it easy this week with an 80-14 pounding of Idaho and will close the regular season next Saturday against a floundering Florida team before the ACC title game on Dec. 7. Ohio State, which still hasnt lost under Urban Meyer, moved up one spot to third after Baylors loss. The Buckeyes were 42-14 winners over Indiana on Saturday and will face arch-rival Michigan next Saturday in the Big House before facing Michigan State for the Big Ten title. Auburn, meanwhile, moved up two spots to fourth, setting up next Saturdays showdown with Alabama in the annual Iron Bowl. In addition to it being a huge rivalry, the winner at Jordan-Hare Stadium will also advance to the SEC Championship Game. Missouri is also in line for a berth in the SEC title game as winner of the East Division, if the Tigers can beat Texas A&M next Saturday. Missouri moved up three spots from eighth to fifth. Clemson, Oklahoma State, Stanford, Baylor and South Carolina complete this weeks top 10. Oklahoma State vaulted four spots from 11th after its resounding win over Baylor, while Stanford moved up two spots from 10th after a 63-13 thumping of arch-rival Cal gave the Cardinal a berth in the Pac-12 title game. The second 10 consists of Michigan State, Oregon, Arizona State, Wisconsin, LSU, Fresno State, UCF, Northern Illinois, Texas A&M and Oklahoma. Oregon tumbled seven spots from fifth after a stunning loss at Arizona, while Arizona State, which claimed the Pac-12 South title with a 38-33 win over UCLA, rose six places from 19th and Texas A&M dipped 10 spots from ninth after its 34-10 loss at LSU. Fresno State and Northern Illinois are the other unbeaten teams left in major college football. The Bulldogs actually dropped a spot from 15th, while the Huskies moved up two from 20th. Both are still vying for a BCS bowl berth. Louisville, UCLA, Southern California, Duke and Notre Dame are the last five teams ranked this week. UCLA dropped eight spots from 14th after its home loss to the Sun Devils. Notre Dame is the lone newcomer, replacing Ole Miss. The Fighting Irish are ranked for a third different time this year and are back after a two-week absence. The Rebels, ranked for four weeks in September, had just a one-week stay this time around at No. 24 after falling to Missouri on Saturday. Next weeks ranked matchups, in addition to the SEC clashes between Alabama and Auburn and Texas A&M and Missouri, include Clemson at South Carolina, Notre Dame at Stanford and the annual USC-UCLA battle at the Coliseum.

Emmit... Smith Womens Jersey . He said Tuesday thats a big reason why he is now the new coach of the Tennessee Titans. Whisenhunt said he hit it off quickly with Ruston Webster when interviewing for the job Friday night.Alabama hired former Southern California coach Lane Kiffin on Friday as its offensive co-ordinator and quarterbacks coach. Kiffin returns to the Southeastern Conference after head coaching stints with the NFLs Oakland Raiders, Alabama rival Tennessee and the Trojans. He replaces Doug Nussmeier, who left Alabama for Michigan. "He is an outstanding and creative offensive coach who has great experience both at the college and NFL level," coach Nick Saban said in a statement. "He has a very good understanding of the game and I have always been impressed with what I saw in the games he called. He coaches with a great deal of passion and enthusiasm, and also does an excellent job as a teacher." Kiffin spent a week in Tuscaloosa, Ala., last month exchanging ideas with Saban and his staff and observing Alabamas offence. Now, hes the splashiest hire of Sabans tenure at Alabama, which has won three national titles in the past five seasons. The 38-year-old Kiffin was 28-15 in three-plus seasons with USC. He was fired five games into last season from one of college footballs marquee jobs. Kiffin spent six seasons (2001-06) at USC under Pete Carroll as an assistant, including the final two as offensive co-ordinator. He also called plays during his time as a head coach. He spent the 2009 season at Tennessee, going 7-6 before leaving to replace Carroll. "We want to thank the University of Alabama and Coach Saban for this tremendous opportunity, and we feel humbled and honoured to be a part of the Crimson Tide family," Kiffin said in a statement. "Ive always had the utmost respect for what Coach Saban has done with his programs. Having the unique opportunity to be here last month, I was able to meet some of the great players and the great people in the organization, and Im very excited to start working with them. "Weve seen the passion and support of the Alabama fans firsthaand, and when thats combined with the storied history and tradition of the program, this is a very special place to coach.dddddddddddd" Now, Kiffin is tasked with finding a replacement for quarterback AJ McCarron, the Heisman Trophy runner-up. One potential contender, Alec Morris, posted on his Twitter page "Love it" after the hiring. His hiring creates a high-profile pairing with Saban, who along with defensive co-ordinator Kirby Smart has routinely fielded one of the nations best defences while also putting up solid numbers with a pro-style offence. Kiffin was part of two national championships as a USC assistant under Carroll. He ran the offence from 2005-06 and was passing game co-ordinator the previous year, when quarterback Matt Leinart won the Heisman. The Trojans averaged 49.1 points and 579.8 total yards per game when Kiffin was offensive co-ordinator. The Tides lone meeting with Kiffins Volunteers proved pivotal during the 2009 national championship season. Terrence Cody blocked two field goals in the fourth quarter to preserve a 12-10 Alabama win and the Tides title hopes. Kiffin did run afoul of SEC Commissioner Mike Slive during his stay at Tennessee. After Kiffin was publicly dismissive of his second reprimand from the league, this one for criticizing officials, Slive issued a letter warning him that further such comments from he or his staff would lead to a suspension from at least one game. Kiffin had questioned why officials didnt penalize Cody for unsportsmanlike conduct when the defensive lineman removed and threw his helmet after his second block on the games final play. He also said at the time that he decided to let the clock run down instead of trying to run another play before the kick because he was concerned about the officiating. No terms of the deal with Alabama were released, pending formal approval by the universitys board of trustees. wholesale jerseys cheap jerseys cheap jerseys cheap nfl jerseys cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
