Don't look back Florida State and Virginia Tech.


Nebraska -- and others -- are moving up in the Top 25.

The Seminoles and Hokies remained 1-2 in The Associated Press' Top 25
college football poll Sunday, but the Cornhuskers leapfrogged three spots to
No. 4 with a victory over previously undefeated Kansas State.


With four of last week's Top 10 teams losing, there was a huge shakeup in
this week's poll as Florida moved up to No. 3, Wisconsin to No. 5 and Texas to
No. 6.


Among those tumbling was Tennessee, 28-24 losers to ArKansas Saturday. The
Vols (7-2) fell four spots to No. 7.


Kansas State , 41-15 losers to Nebraska, also dropped four places, to No. 9;
Penn State fell seven places to No. 13 after a 31-27 loss to Michigan; and
Mississippi State plummeted four spots, to No. 12, after a 19-7 loss to
Alabama.


Florida State (10-0), which beat Maryland 49-10, received 63 first-place
votes and 1,719 points from 69 of the 70 sports writers and broadcasters on the
AP panel. Florida State is at Florida (9-1) next Saturday.


Virginia Tech (9-0), which defeated Miami 43-10, got six first-places votes
-- up two from a week ago -- and 1,658 points.


Florida, a 20-3 winner over South Carolina, had 1,565 points, with Nebraska
at 1,534 points. The Cornhuskers play Colorado next Saturday needing a win to
advance to the Big 12 title game Dec. 4.

Wisconsin, which clinched the Big Ten title and a Rose Bowl berth with a
41-3 victory over Iowa, was up four spots from last week. The Badgers were
followed by No. 6 Texas, No. 7 Tennessee, No. 8 Alabama, No. 9 Kansas State and
No. 10 Michigan.


The Wolverines (8-2) advanced six spots with their victory over the Nittany
Lions (9-2).


Marshall (10-0), the only other major college team with a perfect record,
was up to No. 11 after a 31-17 win over Western Michigan. Mississippi State
(9-1) was No. 12, followed by No. 13 Penn State, No. 14 Georgia Tech, No. 15
Michigan State, No. 16 Mississippi, No. 17 Minnesota, No. 18 Southern
Mississippi, and co-No. 19s BYU and Purdue.


BYU dropped four spots after a 31-17 loss to Wyoming.


Georgia, a 38-21 loser to Auburn, fell seven spots to No. 21, followed by
No. 22 ArKansas, No. 23 East Carolina, No. 24 Texas A&M and No. 25 Boston
College.


In the coaches poll, the top 5 were the same as AP.


ArKansas (6-3), Texas A&M (7-3) and Boston College (7-2) were the new
members of this week's Top 25, while Miami, Washington and Ohio State dropped
out.


Ohio State, which lot to Illinois 46-20, saw its poll appearance streak end
at 86 straight, while Boston College cracked the Top 25 for the first time
since the 1995 preseason poll.
