AP Top 25 poll: Oregon up to No. 3, Penn…


Fresno State, BYU, and Michigan State are also among the top gainers.

Following a week of close games, Penn State entered the top 10 in the AP Top 25 for the first time in over a year, shaking up the rankings.
Alabama maintains their monopoly on the top slot, with No. 2 Georgia collecting the only other first-place vote. After the Sooners survived a rivalry clash against Nebraska, Oregon and Oklahoma flipped to No. 3 and No. 4, respectively.

Arkansas and Ole Miss, both in the middle of the rankings, jumped significantly after defeating Group of Five opponents. After defeating Arizona State and pushing the Sun Devils out of the rankings, No. 15 BYU was one of the biggest winners of the day. The Cougars have already defeated three Power Five opponents. After losing at home to Alabama, Florida remained at No. 11 as a show of respect from the voters.

Fresno State, ranked No. 22, leads a slew of newcomers to the rankings after a stunning comeback victory over UCLA. The rankings have been updated to include No. 20 Michigan State and No. 25 Kansas State.
