NEW YORK — Despite a 34-17 season-opening victory over Navy, Ohio State fell three spots Tuesday in the Associated Press Top 25 college football poll.

The Buckeyes were placed at No. 5 in the preseason poll but that was before the season-ending injury to quarterback Braxton Miller.

Texas A&M moved up 12 spots to No. 9 after routing South Carolina 52-28. The loss dropped the Gamecocks from ninth to No. 21.

Florida State and Alabama lost some support after close victories against heavy underdogs. But the top four are unchanged: Florida State, Alabama, Oregon, and Oklahoma. The Seminoles went from 57 first-place votes to 46.
