TCU drops to sixth in final AP poll

GRAPEVINE, Texas -- Baylor and Ohio State jumped past TCU in the final Associated Press college football poll Sunday.

No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Florida State and No. 3 Oregon held their places from last week in the final media poll of the regular season.

The Bears were fourth and Buckeyes were fifth, with TCU dropping to two spots to sixth after Baylor and Ohio State had impressive wins against ranked teams on Saturday.

TCU routed lowly Iowa State to finish its season as co-champion of the Big 12 with Baylor.

The final College Football Playoff rankings were released on Sunday. Alabama will face Ohio State in the Allstate Sugar Bowl, and Oregon will face Florida State in the Rose Bowl presented by Northwestern Mutual, both on New Year's Day.

The rest of the AP top 10 is Michigan State at seven, followed by Mississippi State, Mississippi and Georgia Tech.
