Alabama takes No. 1, Kansas, TCU and UCLA make first appearance in Week 6's AP Poll

10 ranked teams lost in Week 5, and with eight teams falling from the No. 15 to No. 25, there were bound to create changes in the latest AP Poll. Let's break down Week 6's movement.

Others receiving votes: Washington State 91, Baylor 88, Florida State 78, Arkansas 76, James Madison 39, Florida 37, Maryland 25, Coastal Carolina 17, Minnesota 14, Tulane 9, Illinois 6, North Carolina 5, Texas A&M 4, Purdue 2, Oklahoma 2

Alabama is the new No. 1 After Georgia only beat Missouri by four points, the Bulldogs dropped one spot as new No. 1 Alabama took over the top spot. The switch comes after No. 2 Georgia outpaced Alabama by three first-place votes, 28-23, this week. However, the Crimson Tide sit atop the polls with the most total points at 1,523, two more than the Bulldogs.

Ole Miss joins the top 10 After No. 9 Ole Miss knocked off then-No. 7 Kentucky at home, the Rebels rose five spots into the top 10. Ole Miss has three ranked opponents currently left on its schedule, giving the Rebels plenty of chances to put its top-10 ranking to the test in future weeks.

Undefeated teams make their first appearance in the rankings There are 16 undefeated teams in FBS football and four of them are ranked for the first time this week. No. 17 TCU, No. 18 UCLA, No. 19 Kansas and No. 22 Syracuse all join the top 25 in Week 6.

Kansas is ranked for the first time since 2009 when the Jayhawks peaked at 16th and Syracuse is ranked in Week 6 of the regular season for the first time since 1999 (22nd). The only remaining undefeated teams that are unranked are Coastal Carolina and James Madison.

Biggest movers With 10 ranked teams losing games last week, the bottom of the AP Poll is scrambled.

No. 15 Wake Forest rose seven spots, the most of any team this week, after being one of just three teams ranked below No. 15 to win its game. No. 20 Kansas State rose the second-most spots (five) this week after being the last top-25 team last week.

Meanwhile, No. 13 Kentucky and No. 21 Washington each fell six spots after losing last week, the biggest drop of any team. The Huskies narrowly avoided joining the six teams to drop from the poll.
