The 5-0 Hurricanes' grip on No. 1 isn't tight, however. Oklahoma (5-0) is just two points behind in the poll. Nebraska (6-0) and surging UCLA (5-0) are right behind.
Saturday's upsets, including Arkansas' victory over last week's No. 10 South Carolina, prompted considerable upheaval in TheInsiders.com's Top 10. For the first time this season, the top 10 welcomed two teams with losses - Michigan (5-1) and Texas (5-1).
Auburn (5-1), Toledo (5-0) and Northwestern (4-1) joined TheInsiders.com's Top 25, while Georgia Tech, Texas A&M, Kansas State and Ohio State were dropped from the rankings.
