No. 7 Georgia and No. 9 TCU jumped into the top 10 of The Associated Press college football poll for the first time this season and Florida State dropped all the way out of the rankings for the first time since 2011 after starting 0-2.

Alabama remained No. 1 and won back some of the support it lost last week to No. 2 Clemson. The Crimson Tide received 52 first-place votes Sunday, up seven from last week, after beating Vanderbilt 59-0 on Saturday.

Clemson received eight first-place votes, down seven from last week, after taking more than three quarters to pull away from Boston College. No. 3 Oklahoma got the remaining first-place vote.


Michigan mum on QB Speight's status

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) Michigan coach Jim Harbaugh is already playing coy about his quarterbacks.

Shortly after Saturday's 28-10 come-from-behind win at Purdue, he provided no details about starting quarterback Wilton Speight - or a possible timetable for his return.


Sirk has 426, 3 TDs as ECU tops UConn

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) East Carolina needed a missed field goal from UConn as time expired to prevent overtime, but the Pirates snapped a seven-game losing streak on Sunday with a 41-38 win over the Huskies.

Pirates quarterback Thomas Sirk, coming off a concussion that caused him to miss last week's loss to Virginia Tech, completed 30 of 39 passes for 426 yards and three touchdowns, all to Davon Grayson.


NC State turning the corner with big win

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) North Carolina State has had good results in September under Dave Doeren but has stumbled once it started Atlantic Coast Conference play.

After beating No. 12 Florida State, the Wolfpack are showing signs of being the dark horse contender that some thought they would be before the season started.


No. 4 PSU stuns Iowa with final-play TD

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) It was happening like it had so often in the past.

A once-sluggish Iowa team had come to life in the fourth quarter at home under the lights, and another top-five opponent was set to go down.


Anderson, TCU run by No. 6 Oklahoma St.

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) TCU felt ignored heading into its matchup with high-powered Oklahoma State.

The Horned Frogs can't be overlooked anymore. Darius Anderson ran for a career-high 160 yards and three touchdowns, and No. 16 TCU upset the sixth-ranked Cowboys 44-31 on Saturday to stamp the Horned Frogs as a Big 12 contender.


No. 11 Georgia thrashes No. 17 Miss. St.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) From the very first snap, the message was clear.

Georgia's back.


No. 1 Tide rolls over Vanderbilt 59-0

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Alabama coach Nick Saban challenged the top-ranked Crimson Tide to prove they knew how to not only win, but dominate an opponent for a full 60 minutes.

That, and a bit of motivation provided by the confident Vanderbilt Commodores , was all Alabama needed.


No. 2 Clemson pulls away late, downs BC

CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson coach Dabo Swinney looked over the stat sheet and smiled.

"You rush for 342 yards," he said, "and you're going to win a lot of football games."


No. 3 Sooners edge Baylor, streak at 14

WACO, Texas (AP) Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield had a bit more respect for Baylor after the game. He also had another victory.

After being caught on video before the game with some smack talk directed at winless Baylor , Mayfield threw three touchdowns and the third-ranked Sooners overcame the feisty Bears 49-41 Saturday night to stretch the nation's longest winning streak to 14 games.
