Top 25 Transformed After Nine Teams Lose

NEW YORK (October 7, 2012)--South Carolina, Florida and West Virginia moved into the top five of The Associated Press college football poll Sunday after a Saturday during which nine Top 25 teams lost.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon held their spots at the top of the rankings.

Alabama was a unanimous No. 1 again, but the rest of Top 25 got a makeover.

South Carolina, off a 35-7 victory against Georgia, moves up three spots to No. 3.

Florida jumped six spots to No. 4 after beating LSU 14-6.

West Virginia moves up three to Nov. 5 with a 48-45 victory at Texas.

The shuffle moved Kansas State to No. 6, Notre Dame to No. 7 and Ohio State to No. 8.

LSU dropped to No. 9 and unbeaten Oregon State is No. 10.

TCU, ranked No. 15 before Saturday’s 37-23 loss to Iowa State, dropped out of the poll.

The last time nine ranked teams lost in the same week was the weekend of Oct. 18, 2008.
