This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

The Top 25 was shaken Sunday after seven ranked teams lost, including five to teams that were unranked or lower ranked. After losing at Utah, Stanford dropped eight spots, and Michigan fell from the poll after its loss to Penn State.

After upsetting the No. 5 Cardinal, Utah garnered 47 votes in polling for the AP Top 25.

The top four was unchanged, with No. 1 Alabama receiving 55 of 60 first-place votes. No. 2 is Oregon, followed by Clemson and Ohio State. Florida State moved up to No. 5 to set up a top-five matchup at Clemson next week.

Stanford lost 27-21 at Utah and is now No. 13, becoming the first top-10 team this season to lose to an unranked team. Michigan drops out after losing 43-40 in four overtimes at Penn State.

No. 24 Auburn moved into the rankings for the first time this season to join No. 6 LSU, No. 7 Texas A&M, No. 11 South Carolina, No. 14 Missouri, No. 15 Georgia and No. 22 Florida. Missouri jumped 11 spots after a 41-26 victory at Georgia (4-2).

Also new in Sunday's rankings, the Southeastern Conference has set a record for most schools in AP college football poll with eight ranked teams.

The record for most teams from one conference in a regular-season poll had been seven, done many times, including this season by the SEC. The ACC and Big Ten have also reached seven ranked teams in a season.

The SEC also had eight teams ranked in the 2011 preseason poll. —
