Auburn moved up a spot to No. 3 behind No. 1 Mississippi State and No. 2 Florida State.
Among the big drops: Ole Miss fell five spots to No. 12. Georgia’s surprising 38-20 loss to Florida cost the Bulldogs eight spots in the rankings, falling to No. 17. Arizona took its second loss, 17-7 at UCLA, which dropped the Wildcats seven spots to No. 21.
K-State is also No. 9 in the coaches’ poll. Missouri, which took over first place in the SEC East, barely missed being ranked in both polls.
