AP Top 25 College Football Poll: Oklahoma, Louisville, TCU Make Big Moves, Ohio State Falls

Several teams made big jumps in the Associated Press college football poll on Sunday.

Oklahoma (2-0) jumped three spots to come in at No. 2 after taking down then-No. 2 Ohio State (1-1) on the road. Alabama stayed on top as the top-ranked team and Clemson, USC and Penn State rounded out the Top 5.

The last time the Sooners were this close to being No. 1 was back in 2011. The Crimson Tide collected 58 of 61 first-place votes with the Sooners collecting two and Tigers getting one first-place vote.

Louisville jumped three spots to come in at No. 14 and TCU, which took down Arkansas on the road, also jumped three spots to come in at No. 20. UCLA (2-0) was the only new team to jump into the rankings at No. 25 and made its first appearance as a ranked team this season.
