NEW YORK (AP) — The Oregon Ducks jumped up one spot to No. 2 in the latest Associated Press poll. The Ducks swapped spots with Ohio State, which fell to No. 3.

Clemson has surged to its highest ranking in the AP poll in 25 years after the Tigers won the biggest game of the opening weekend of the college football season.

Clemson is No. 4 in the first regular season Top 25, following its 38-35 victory against Georgia. The Tigers received one-first place vote and have their best showing in the poll since Sept. 12, 1988, when they were No. 3.

Alabama remains No. 1 and receives 58 of 60 first-place votes from the media panel after beating Virginia Tech 35-10 to start the season.

Oregon State, which had been ranked No. 25, did not receive any votes after losing to Eastern Washington.

Stanford is No. 5 and Washington landed at No. 20 after beating Boise State in the newly renovated Husky Stadium.

The Broncos will now face the University of Tennessee-Martin Saturday at Bronco Stadium.
