Despite some shakeup among the top six teams, the University of Alabama football team remained stuck at No. 8 in this week's Associated Press top 25 college football poll.

The Crimson Tide converted a 4th and 31 for the go-ahead touchdown with under a minute left to avoid an Auburn upset in the Iron Bowl on Saturday, and despite the No. 2 team falling, were unable to rise in the rankings.

This is the fifth consecutive week the Crimson Tide have been ranked eighth in the poll.

The Tide remain one spot behind No. 7 Texas, which holds the head-to-head matchup victory from earlier this season. Alabama still has a chance of making the College Football Playoff, should the Tide beat No. 1 Georgia in the SEC Championship.

Ohio State fell from No. 2 to No. 6 after losing to Michigan, which jumped from No. 3 to No. 2 after the win.

The top four rated teams in this week's poll are No. 1 Georgia, No. 2 Michigan, No. 3 Washington and No. 4 Florida State.

ESPN will unveil the newest College Football Playoff rankings on Tuesday. After conference championship weekend, the top four teams in the College Football Playoff rankings will play for the title.

Alabama heads to Atlanta to square off with reigning back-to-back champions Georgia in the SEC Championship on Saturday. That game will air on CBS at 3 p.m. CT.
