No. 3 Florida State gains ground on No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon in The Associated Press college football poll, earning four more first-place votes than it did last week.

The Seminoles are coming off another easy victory against a previously unbeaten rival. Florida State beat Miami 41-14 on Saturday night and received six-first-place votes from the media panel Sunday. Last month the Seminoles handed Clemson its first loss.

Alabama remains No. 1 with 52 first-place votes, three less than last week. Oregon received two first-place votes, a loss of one for the Ducks.

Miami's first loss drops it seven spot to 14th.

Notre Dame moved back into the rankings at No. 24 and Michigan fell out after losing to Michigan State. The Spartans advance six spots to 18th.
