Florida State, Baylor and Missouri took big steps forward as The Associated Press college football poll got an extensive makeover Sunday following losses by five top-10 teams. The Huskers moved back into the rankings in 25th place, even though they didn't play Saturday.
Alabama is still No. 1, Oregon still two and Ohio State fourth, but otherwise there was much change. Florida State moved two spots to No. 3 after its 51-14 win at Clemson. The Crimson Tide received 55 first-place votes from the media panel. Oregon got three first-place votes and Florida State received two.
Missouri (7-0) went from 14 to fifth, its best ranking since 2008. No. 6 Baylor jumped to its highest ranking since 1980. Miami is No. 7 followed by Stanford, Clemson and Texas Tech at No. 10.
No. 21 UCF is ranked for the first time since the final 2010 poll.
Nebraska (5-1) remains at 21st in the USA Today coaches poll.
