Miami is back at No. 2 in The Associated Press college football poll, the Hurricanes' best ranking since 2003.

The undefeated Hurricanes leaped five spots from No. 7 after routing Notre Dame on Saturday night. Alabama remained No. 1, where it has been since the preseason, getting 57 first-place votes. Miami received the other four first-place votes.

Oklahoma moved up to two spots to No. 3, jumping Clemson, which remained No. 4. Unbeaten Wisconsin moved up a spot to No. 5.

Three matchups of top-10 teams on Saturday produced lopsided victories for the home teams, including Miami over Notre Dame. The Irish dropped six spots to No. 9.

Auburn moved up to No. 6 after beating Georgia. The Bulldogs fell from second to seventh. TCU dropped out of the top 10 after losing at Oklahoma.

Michigan jumped up two spots to number 19 with their 8-2 record and decisive win over Maryland. They have Wisconsin next on their schedule who is ranked fifth.

After rolling Michigan State, the Buckeyes are ranked eighth and have caused the Spartans to drop nine spots to number 22.
