Michigan moved up three spots to No. 8 in the Associated Press college football poll on the strength of its 33-17 victory over Florida at AT&T Stadium.

Michigan is also No. 8 in the coaches poll, climbing one spot.

Florida State slipped all the way to the No. 10 after losing to Alabama and losing quarterback Deondre Francois to a season-ending injury.

The Crimson Tide is No. 1 again, securing 60 of 61 first-place votes in the first Top 25 of the regular season. Ohio State remained No. 2 in the media poll and received the other first-place vote. Defending champion Clemson moved up to No. 3 on Tuesday. Penn State is No. 4 and Oklahoma moved up to No. 5, meaning for the second straight week there will be a top-five matchup. The Sooners play at Ohio State on Saturday.

Florida State was No. 3 in the preseason poll and lost an opening-week showdown with Alabama, 24-7. Francois went down with a knee injury late in the game.

The Seminoles will turn to freshman quarterback James Blackman to start. Florida State hosts Louisiana-Monroe this week, but the stiffer tests are coming soon. No. 16 Miami visits Tallahassee on Sept. 16.

Many AP voters said that Florida State they would not have dropped as far on their ballots had Francois not been injured. ESPN’s Rece Davis said he would have had the Seminoles no lower than No. 3 without the injury to Francois.

“I have them at a shaky seven now solely because their defense is filthy,” Davis said.

Southern California slipped two spots to No. 6 after playing a tighter-than-expected game against Western Michigan. Washington is No. 7. No. 9 Wisconsin and Florida State round out the top 10.

Michigan is one of four Big Ten teams in the poll, all ranked in the top 10. Ohio State leads the way at No. 2, followed by Penn State (No. 4) and Wisconsin (No. 9)

Florida dropped five slots to No. 22.
