Survival was the theme of college football's action last week, and the Week 11 AP poll reflects it.
Two of the top four teams in the nation, Alabama and Notre Dame, saw their perfect seasons flash before their eyes. Survival turned into resolve, and both the Crimson Tide and Fighting Irish showed that they had it.
Alabama defeated LSU 21-17, and Notre Dame beat Pittsburgh in triple overtime 29-26. With the wins, not much has changed in the title picture, according to the AP.
Alabama and Oregon still remain the biggest winners of all, holding the top two spots. Although Kansas State and Notre Dame are No. 3 and No. 4 respectively, they continue to be the biggest losers in the AP poll.
