(AP) -- Baylor climbs to No. 5 in The Associated Press college football poll, the best ranking for the Bears in 60 years.

The top four teams in the rankings all put on impressive displays Saturday and hold their spots Sunday.

No. 1 Alabama received 55 first-place votes after beating Tennessee 45-10. No. 2 Oregon got three first-place votes following a 42-14 victory against UCLA. No. 3 Florida State pounded North Carolina State 49-17 and drew two first-place votes from the media panel. No. 4 Ohio State handed Penn State its worst loss in more than a century, 63-14.

Baylor beat Kansas 59-14 and moved up a spot after Missouri took its first loss. The only higher ranking for the Bears came in November 1953 when they were No. 3.
