Michigan, on the strength of its 49-3 win over Western Michigan, improved two spots to No. 19 in this week’s Associated Press college football poll, released Sunday.

Michigan State, meanwhile, which lost 16-13 at Arizona State, fell to No. 25 from No. 15.

The top four teams in the poll remained unchanged: No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Clemson, No. 3 Georgia and No. 4 Ohio State. Oklahoma jumped over Wisconsin and into the fifth spot after a 49-21 win over UCLA.

The Crimson Tide made their 106th overall appearance at No. 1 in the AP rankings, which started in 1936, passing Ohio State for the most by any school.

Alabama received a season-high 54 first-place votes from the media panel Sunday, strengthening its hold on Clemson. The Tigers, who started the season with 18 first-place votes, are down to six after hanging on for 28-26 victory at Texas A&M on Saturday night.

No. 23 Arizona State is in the rankings for the first time since the 2015 preseason poll. It is the first regular-season ranking for the Sun Devils since 2014 and the first under new coach Herm Edwards.
