Oklahoma held its top spot after an impressive 47-14 thrashing of Tulsa, but the rest of the top 10 shifted considerably.
LSU jumped from No. 4 to No. 2 after dismantling Oregon , which fell from No. 3 to No. 13. Alabama moved down one spot to No. 3, despite rolling over Kent State. Boise State moved up a rung to No. 4 after handling Georgia in prime time on Saturday night, and Florida State rounded out the top five.
Four new teams — No. 20 Baylor, No. 22 South Florida, No. 23 Penn State and No. 24 Texas — entered the rankings while Notre Dame (16), Georgia (19), Auburn (23) and USC (25) all fell out of the poll.
Notre Dame fell 23-20 at home in a game that featured multiple weather delays while defending BCS champions Auburn had to rally in the final minutes to edge Utah State 42-38.
