The 7-0 Hurricanes, 38-0 victors over Temple on Saturday, are back on top by their lonesome, outpolling the 10-0 Cornhuskers 269 points to 268.
Meanwhile, it's raining cats and dawgs (Washington State Cougars and Washington Huskies), and of course Ducks (Oregon), as the Pacific Northwest continued to invade the poll's Top 10. Oregon (8-1) moved up a notch to No. 7, as the Huskies (7-1) moved to No. 8 after knocking off previous No. 10 Stanford and the Cougars (8-1) bounced UCLA, which last week was ranked No. 11.
Michigan (6-2) take a tumble from No. 6 to No. 12 after a 26-24 upset loss to rival Michigan State.
Colorado (7-2), the aforementioned Spartans (5-2) and Boston College (6-2) moved into the rankings, while Texas A&M, Mississippi and North Carolina dropped out.
