The newest Associated Press Top 25 poll was released and results from Saturday's action were evident. 
Following the trend set by the USA Today Coaches Poll, Ohio State fell six spots, from No. 2 to No. 8, following its loss to Oklahoma in Week 2. 
The Sooners picked up two first-place votes and jumped to No. 2 while Alabama remained an overwhelming No. 1 with 58 first-place votes. No. 3 Clemson also received a first-place vote while USC and Penn State rounded out the top five. 
Oklahoma State entered the top 10 after starting 2-0 with wins over Tulsa and South Alabama. 
Stanford was another team that slipped. The Cardinal fell from No. 14 to No. 19 after losing to USC while the Trojans' cross-town rival UCLA entered the top 25 for the first time this year. 
Thanks to some big games in Week 2, the new Coaches Poll has been shaken up at the top. 
Specifically, Oklahoma has entered the top five after a statement win over Ohio State. The Sooners rose three spots to No. 3, while the Buckeyes plummeted seven spots to No. 9 following the 31-16 game. 
Alabama remains at the top of the coaches poll and received 58 of 60 possible first-place votes. Clemson, coming off a 14-6 win over Auburn, has the other two first-place votes and moved up one spot to No. 2. 
Auburn dropped four spots to No. 17 and Stanford fell five spots to No. 19 after a double-digit loss to USC. Notre Dame dropped out of the top 25 after losing 20-19 at home to Georgia.
