Georgia stays No. 1, Purdue enters Top 25 after 14 years

Georgia stayed atop the Associated Press Top 25 poll and No. 2 Iowa plummeted out of the Top 10 in the latest poll, released Sunday.

Georgia (7-0) received all 63 first-place votes following its 30-13 win over No. 11 Kentucky. Iowa, with its surprising 24-7 loss to Purdue, fell nine places to No. 11 in a topsy-turvy week that saw five teams tumble out of the Top 25.

Cincinnati (6-0) moved to No. 2 for the first time in program history, followed by Oklahoma (7-0), Alabama (6-1) and Ohio State (5-1).

Rounding out the Top 10 were Michigan (6-0), Penn State (5-1), Oklahoma State (6-0), Michigan State (7-0) and Oregon (5-1).

Besides Iowa and Kentucky, which slipped to No. 15, five other teams that entered the weekend ranked also lost: Arkansas, Arizona State, BYU, Florida and Texas.

All five fell out of the top 25. Just three weeks ago, Arkansas and Florida were in the top 10, and BYU was there two weeks ago.

Replacing them were No. 19 Auburn (5-2), No. 20 Baylor (6-1), No. 23 Pitt (5-1), No 24 UTSA (7-0) and No. 25 Purdue (4-2).

This marks UTSA’s first-ever appearance in the poll. Purdue last showed up on the list on Sept. 30, 2007, the longest stretch without a Top 25 appearance among Power Five teams. That distinction now belongs to Kansas, which was last ranked in 2009.
