MORE THAN a few precincts in Gator Nation weren't exactly thrilled when Florida was only leading Bowling Green by three after 45 minutes at home in the Sept. 1 opener. That's what can happen when you're trying to replace someone who won two national titles in 3 years, and you're coming off a 7-6 debut. Especially when you're employing a different offensive system than Urban Meyer, or even Steve Spurrier. But apparently, old-time football can still work. Ask Alabama's Nick Saban. Or Spurrier, whose South Carolina team, coming off its first loss, will be in Gainesville Saturday to play the nation's third-ranked squad.

LSU freshman Jeremy Hill highlighted a breakout 124-yard, two-touchdown performance with a 50-yard scoring run, and the ninth-ranked Tigers handed No. 3 South Carolina its first loss of the season, 23-21, on Saturday night in Baton Rouge, La. LSU (6-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) substantially outgained South Carolina (6-1, 4-1), 406 yards to 211, but struggled to find the end zone. Three times, LSU settled for field goals after driving at least as far as the Gamecocks' 5-yard line, and another drive to the South Carolina 15 stalled on a missed field goal.

A team from the SEC West has won four of the last five national titles, including the last three. Of course a team from the SEC East won the other, plus the one in 2006. You think we'll ever be saying that about either the Big Ten Leaders or Legends? Now the SEC has four unbeatens in the top six, five in the top 10, six in the top 20. Soon, two of those unbeatens won't be. Because fourth-ranked LSU, which has dropped two spots in 2 weeks, is at No. 10 Florida. And No. 6 South Carolina hosts No. 5 Georgia.

Alabama is a unanimous No. 1 in the Top 25 for the first time this season, and Louisiana State slipped a spot again after another sketchy performance. Now the Tigers are No. 4 behind No. 2 Oregon and No. 3 Florida State. With Stanford the lone team in the top 19 to lose, the top of the rankings had only some relatively minor shuffling Sunday. That will change next week, when five games feature matchups of ranked teams, including three with both teams ranked between Nos. 5 and 11. Call it the first shakedown Saturday of the season.

No. 7 West Virginia and the Big 12, perfect together. Geno Smith and the fast-moving, high-scoring Mountaineers proved they fit right in with their new conference, outracing No. 24 Baylor, 70-63, on Saturday in Morgantown, W.Va., in the Big 12's highest-scoring game ever. Smith tied a conference mark with eight touchdown passes and narrowly missed another one with 656 yards passing. "It did feel like one of those classic Texas shootouts," said Smith, whose school moved over from the Big East this season.

NEW YORK - Alabama and Louisiana State are back atop the Associated Press college football poll, holding down Nos. 1 and 2 the way they did most of last season. The Crimson Tide are No. 1 for the third straight week, and it was almost unanimous. Alabama received 58 of 60 first-place votes. LSU got the other two. The Southeastern Conference rivals were ranked first and second for eight weeks during last season before eventually meeting in the BCS title game. The difference last year was LSU was first and Alabama second - until the Tide won the national championship game.

ALABAMA IS THE new No. 1 in the Associated Press college football poll, moving past Southern California after its resounding victory against Michigan. The Crimson Tide swayed more than enough voters with its 41-14 win Saturday night in Texas to overtake the preseason No. 1 Trojans, who beat Hawaii, 49-10. USC entered that game a 40-point favorite at home. The Tide received 45 first-place votes, up 28 from last week. USC drew 11 first-place votes and No. 3 LSU four. It's the 47th time Alabama has been No. 1, the 16th under coach Nick Saban.
