Top-ranked Ohio State has picked up 11 first-place votes in The Associated Press Top 25 college football poll following Utah's first loss of the season.
    
The Buckeyes (8-0) have been No. 1 all season, but had been losing first-place votes in recent weeks. This week, Ohio State had 39 first-place votes in the poll released Sunday after routing Rutgers.
    
Baylor, Clemson, LSU and TCU - the rest of the top 5 - also received first-place votes, as did No. 7 Alabama.

Utah had its highest regular-season ranking after climbing to No. 3 last week, but dropped 10 spots after losing to unranked Southern California.
    
Florida State also dropped after its first loss of the season, falling eight places to No. 17. The Seminoles lost 22-16 to Georgia Tech on a blocked field goal that was returned for a touchdown on the game's final play.

The AP Top 25 is determined by a simple points system based on how each voter ranks college football's best teams. A team receives 25 points for each first place vote, 24 for second place and so on through to the 25th team, which receives one point. The rankings are set by listing the teams' point totals from highest to lowest. Fox 8's Garland Gillen is one of those voters.

This is Garland Gillen's 6th year as a voter for the Associated Press poll.

    FOOTBALL This 7-9 business won't work again on Airline Drive. You finish with that mark four years in a row, and Drew Brees will be gone after the 2017 season.
