Alabama and Georgia remained No. 1 and 2 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll, leading a group of seven ranked teams from the Southeastern Conference.
The Big Ten placed three teams in the Top 10, with Ohio State – off an unimpressive win over Tulsa — falling to No. 10 behind No. 5 Iowa and No. 6 Penn State.
Rounding out the Top 10 were No. 3 Oregon and No. 4 Oklahoma, who flipped places, along with No. 7 Texas A&M, No. 8 Cincinnati and No. 9 Clemson.
The Tigers fell three spots from No. 9; Penn State replaced Clemson at No. 6 after a 28-20 win over Auburn.
Except for Ohio State and Clemson, both of which are 2-1, all teams in the Top 10 are 3-0.
Taking the biggest tumble of the week was UCLA, which fell from No. 13 to 24. A feel-good story after years of mediocrity, the Bruins entered the week at 2-0 but lost to Fresno State 40-37.
With the win, the Bulldogs (3-1) entered the poll at No. 22.
Florida (2-1) stayed at No. 11 after a tough 31-29 loss to Alabama on Saturday, the highest ranked of the second tier of SEC schools – No. 13 Ole Miss (3-0), No. 16 Arkansas (3-0) and No. 23 Auburn (2-1).
The non-Power 5 conferences retained their strong presence in the poll, with No. 15 BYU rising eight spots, above No. 17 Coastal Carolina. Both teams are undefeated after three weeks of the season.
Undefeated Michigan State, with a 38-17 victory Saturday over Miami (FL), entered the poll at No. 20, immediately following its Big Ten mates Wisconsin (1-1) and Michigan (3-0).
Falling out of the Top 25 were Miami and Arizona State after losses. Kansas State (3-0) entered at No. 25.
