Tennessee Receives One Vote In AP Top-25

Southern California continues its season-long ride atop the AP Top 25. Coming off a win over Washington State that pushed their record to 3-and-0, the Trojans were named number one on 43 of the 65 ballots cast by a nationwide media panel. Number-two LSU received the other 22 first-place votes.

Oklahoma and Florida swap places at three and four, respectively, and West Virginia stays put at number five.

California, Texas, Ohio State and Wisconsin also maintain their positions at six through nine, with Rutgers moving up one notch to tenth.

The second ten consists of Oregon, Boston College, Clemson, Kentucky, Georgia, South Carolina, Virginia Tech, South Florida, Hawaii and Missouri.

Rounding out the Top 25 are Penn State, Alabama, newcomers Arizona State and Cincinnati, followed by Nebraska.

Kentucky and Georgia are the most upward-mobile programs. Both improve seven places from last week's poll to 14th and 15th.

Penn State plunged eleven spots to 21st.

Louisville and Texas A&M dropped out of the Top 25.
