Notre Dame has dropped out of The Associated Press and USA Today college football polls released Sunday after the Fighting Irish lost their second game of the season.
Alabama remained No. 1 as the top five held their spots in both polls. The Crimson Tide received 55 of 60 first-place votes in the AP rankings and No. 2 Oregon got the rest from the media panel, one more than last week. Clemson is third, followed by Ohio State and Stanford.
Georgia moved up to No. 6 after its 44-41 victory against LSU, which slipped four spots to 10th.
Notre Dame (3-2), coming off a loss in the BCS championship game, began the season at No. 14 but is now out of the Top 25 after losing 35-21 at home to Oklahoma, which moved up three spots to 11th. The Fighting Irish next play No. 22 Arizona State. The Sun Devils (3-1) beat USC 62-41 Saturday night and the Trojans fired head coach Lane Kiffin hours later.
USC has lost seven of its last 11 games and are 0-2 in the PAC-12 and 3-2 overall this season. Kiffin's overall record in four seasons with the Trojans was 28-15. The school has scheduled a news conference for later Sunday.
Maryland moved into the AP poll at No. 25 and Wisconsin fell out. Nebraska (3-1) is back on the USA Today poll at No. 25. The Huskers, who didn't play Saturday, host Illinois this week.
