TCU rises, Boise State falls in new AP Top 25

After its 47-7 thrashing at fellow undefeated Utah on Saturday, TCU moved up to No. 3 in the new Associated Press Top 25 poll released Sunday.

Meanwhile, Oregon remained the nation’s top-ranked team after its win over Washington and Auburn moved up to No. 2 following its win over Chattanooga.

Despite its lopsided home victory over Hawaii, Boise State fell two spots to No. 4 as the Broncos are becoming more and more likely to get shut out of the BCS title game — unless Oregon and Auburn falter. TCU’s dominant performance on the road seemed to swing momentum in their favor in the cause for non-AQ teams.

Oregon received 49 first-place votes and 1,484 points, while Auburn received two first-place votes. TCU also received two first-place votes and jumped 41 points to 1,391. Boise State kept its seven first-place votes but dropped 37 points to 1,366.

Here is a look at the complete poll.

And don’t forget that the new NFP Top 25 will be posted late Monday afternoon.
