K-State at No. 13, down a spot from the preseason poll after a 27-13 win over Western Kentucky, is the highest ranked Big 12 team aside from the Sooners and Horns. Missouri, a 52-20 winner over Arkansas State, checked in at No. 19, also down a notch from its preseason spot. Nebraska, a 56-17 winner over Western Illinois, is just out of the poll as the top team in the Others Receiving Votes category. Also of note, Aggie-slayer Utah jumped from 20 to 17.
Horns Remain No. 7 in AP Poll
With no upsets among the top teams in the country, the rankings stayed largely unchanged. LSU, though, after sneaking away with a 22-21 overtime win over Oregon State Saturday evening, fell from No. 4 to No. 6, one spot ahead of Texas. USC (a 24-13 winner over Virginia Tech last weekend), Oklahoma (a 40-24 winner over Bowling Green Saturday) and Georgia (a 48-28 winner over Georgia Southern) remained at 1, 2 and 3, respectively, while Florida State and Miami took advantage of the Tigers' slip, moving up to 4 and 5. The Seminoles and Hurricanes square off this Friday in a game rescheduled due to hurricane Frances.
