FSU tumbles way down in AP poll, Florida rises up on bye week
Florida State took a precipitous drop in The Associate Press poll, dropping out of the top 10 and falling eight spots to No. 17 after they were stunned by Georgia Tech on a blocked field goal returned for a touchdown Saturday night. Florida, which was idle this week, rose two spots to No. 11.
Top-ranked Ohio State picked up 11 first-place votes following Utah’s first loss of the season.
The Buckeyes (8-0) have been No. 1 all season, but had been losing first-place votes in recent weeks. This week, Ohio State had 39 first-place votes in the poll released Sunday after routing Rutgers.
Baylor, Clemson, LSU and TCU — the rest of the top 5 — also received first-place votes, as did No. 7 Alabama.
Utah had its highest regular-season ranking after climbing to No. 3 last week, but dropped 10 spots after losing to unranked Southern California.
