NEW YORK (AP) - Oklahoma has dropped out of the AP college
football poll for the first time since 2005, and No. 25 Stanford
has moved into the rankings for the first time since 2001.
The first six spots in the rankings are held by major college
football's six unbeaten teams, with Florida, Texas and Alabama
making up the top three for the second consecutive week.
TCU moved up two spots to No. 4, bumping No. 5 Cincinnati and
No. 6 Boise State back a spot.
Oklahoma had managed to stay in the rankings this season while
losing three close games without star quarterback Sam Bradford, but
Saturday's 10-3 loss at Nebraska dropped the Sooners to 5-4 and out
of the media poll.
The rest of the top 10 is Georgia Tech at No. 7, followed by
Pittsburgh, Ohio State and LSU.
