Texas A&M began the post-Johnny Manziel era with a 52-28 victory at South Carolina. The loss dropped the Gamecocks from ninth to No. 21.<br /> <br /> The top four in the rankings are unchanged: Florida State, Alabama, Oregon and Oklahoma.<br /> <br /> Florida State went from 57 first-place votes to 46 after pulling out a 37-31 victory against Oklahoma State.<br /> <br /> Alabama dropped 44 points in the media-panel voting after beating West Virginia. The Tide has one first-place vote. Oregon has five and Oklahoma two. No. 6 Georgia has two after it's 45-21 defeat of Clemson in the two teams' season opener in Athens.
