Auburn needed overtime to escape with a victory against FCS foe Jacksonville State. Auburn paid for it dropping heavily in both the AP and Coaches' rankings.

Auburn fell 12 spots to No. 18 in the AP and eight spots to No. 15 in the Coaches'.

A week after landing a record 10 teams in the polls, the SEC didn't fare so well. Oklahoma and Arkansas fell out of the polls after losses this weekend. 

The conference does still have seven teams ranked in each poll, led by No. 2 Alabama and No. 7/8 Georgia.
