UNDATED (AP) — The No. 1 vs. No. 2 game between Alabama and LSU in two weeks looks set, though the order of Crimson Tide and Tigers changed in the AP Top 25 in one of the closet votes ever. Heading into an off date for both teams, LSU flip-flopped with Alabama to become the new No. 1 in The Associated Press college football poll presented by Regions Bank. No. 3 Ohio State was not far behind. Eight points separating first from third is the fewest in the regular season since December 1979. Clemson is No. 4.
