AP Top 25, Week 3: Oklahoma Hits Milestone, Alabama & LSU Swap Again.

For the 100th time in school history the Oklahoma Sooners are ranked #1.  The Sooners retained their top ranking despite having a bye week as they prepare for their enormous showdown in Tallahassee with Florida State (#5). 

Meanwhile, the jockeying for the #2 spot in the rankings continued.  After dumping Oregon (#12) with authority, LSU jumped Alabama for 2nd, but after the Tide rolled up Penn State on Saturday Nick Saban and Alabama leapfrogged their SEC West rival to reclaim their pre-season ranking.
