Missouri dropped out of the Associated Press Top 25 one day after faltering at home against Indiana. The Tigers had been ranked No. 18 before a 31-27 loss against the Hoosiers.

Meanwhile, Kansas State, which had been ranked 20th, fell to No. 25 after its home loss Thursday against Auburn.

Florida State remained No. 1 followed by Oregon, but No. 3 Alabama, No. 4 Oklahoma and No. 6 Texas A&M each siphoned away a few first-place votes after the Seminoles’ overtime win against Clemson without Jameis Winston and the Ducks’ narrow victory against Washington State.

Auburn remained fifth after beating the Wildcats in Manhattan. Kan.

Baylor, Notre Dame, Michigan State and Mississippi round out the top 10.

Missouri also tumbled from the USA Today Coaches’ Poll.

The Tigers had been ranked No. 19, but received only 13 points and effectively are tied for 36th in the latest ranking.

Even with Missouri’s loss, ESPN’s College Game Day announced Sunday that it would be in Columbia, S.C., for the Tigers’ game at No. 13 South Carolina next weekend.

K-State also fell from 20th to 25th in the coaches’ poll just like in the AP poll.
