South Carolina, off a 35-7 victory against Georgia, moved up three spots to No. 3 in both polls.

Florida jumped six spots in the AP to No. 4 and five spots in the USA Today poll to No. 6 after beating LSU 14-6.

West Virginia moved up three spots in both polls — to No. 5 in AP and No. 4 in USA Today — with a 48-45 victory at Texas.

Kansas State moved to No. 6 and 5 in the AP and USA Today polls, respectively; Notre Dame was 7 in both polls; Ohio State was No. 8 in the AP poll (it is unranked in the USA Today poll because it was banned for one year for post-season play); LSU drops to No. 9 and No. 8 in the polls and unbeaten Oregon State is No. 10 and No. 14.

The last time nine ranked teams lost in the same week was the weekend of Oct. 18, 2008.
