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.
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
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.
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
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.
