Despite a win over a Navy team that will end up in a bowl, Ohio State fell from No. 5 to No. 8 in the latest AP poll. The slip, obviously, has a lot to do with Braxton Miller's season-ending injury.

Florida State, Alabama, Oregon and Oklahoma hold the down the poll's top spots.

Michigan State, the AP's No. 7 team, is the Big Ten's highest ranked team. Wisconsin checks-in at No. 18, and Nebraska comes in at No. 19.

Michigan, much like the Coaches Poll, failed to make an appearance.
