Gamecocks jump in two major polls after beating 'Bama

COLUMBIA (WIS) - There's a new No. 1 in the nation and that team has the Gamecocks to thank for knocking off Alabama.

Ohio State has moved to the top of the Associated Press college football poll and the USA TODAY/ESPN Top 25 football coaches poll.

The Buckeyes moved up one spot in the AP Top 25 after preseason No. 1 Alabama lost for the first time this season to South Carolina 35-21.

South Carolina moved up nine spots to No. 10 in the AP poll and is now ranked No. 12 in the USA TODAY/ESPN coaches poll, up 8 spots from last week.

The rest of the AP poll has Oregon at No. 2, followed by Boise State, TCU, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Auburn. Ohio State received 34 first-place votes and Oregon (15), Boise State (eight), TCU (one) and Oklahoma (two) also got first-place votes from the media panel.

Oregon, Boise State, Nebraska and TCU round out the Top 5 in the coaches poll.

The Crimson Tide slipped to No. 8, LSU was No. 9 and South Carolina moved up nine spots to 10th after the program's first victory against a top-ranked team.

The last time Ohio State was No. 1 was the final regular season poll of 2007.
