SEC Rules: Florida, Alabama Are 1 And 2

Alabama jumped Texas into second-place behind top-ranked Florida in The Associated Press college football poll, giving the Southeastern Conference the Nos. 1 and 2 teams in the country.

The Crimson Tide moved up one spot after rolling over Mississippi 22-3. Texas, which had been No. 2 all season, slipped a spot after sputtering early in a 38-14 victory against Colorado.

The Gators and Tim Tebow beat LSU 13-3. They have been an overwhelming No. 1 since the preseason, but support for Alabama has steadily grown.

Florida received 50 of 60 first-place votes from the media panel, a season low. The Crimson Tide received 10 first-place votes, up from five last week.

No. 4 Virginia Tech and No. 5 Boise State each moved up one spot.
