Second-ranked Alabama, third-ranked Oregon and No. 4 Oklahoma all received one first-place vote.

Ohio State is fifth, followed by Auburn, UCLA, Michigan St., South Carolina and Baylor.

The Bowl Championship Series is being replaced this season by the College Football Playoff. A selection committee will pick the top four teams in the country for two national semifinals.
