Indiana Breaks Top-10 in Latest College Football Polls

No. 25 Tulsa is ranked in The Associated Press college football poll for the first time in 10 years and No. 9 Indiana is set to play the first top-10 matchup in program history.


The AP Top 25 was mostly stagnant Sunday after four of the top five teams did not play and only one ranked team lost this weekend.


Alabama is No. 1 for the second straight week, with 60 first-place votes. No. 2 Notre Dame received one first-place vote and No. 3 Ohio State got the other. The rest of the top eight was unchanged: Clemson is No. 4, followed by Texas A&M, Florida, Cincinnati and BYU.


Tulsa moved into the rankings after beating American Athletic Conference rival SMU, knocking the Mustangs from the Top 25.


The Golden Hurricane were last ranked in the final poll of the 2010 season at No. 24. The last time Tulsa was ranked during the regular season was two years before that, when coach Todd Graham had the Golden Hurricane as high at No. 19.


Clemson has now been ranked in the top five for 50 consecutive weeks, the longest active streak in college football and the third-longest streak in the history of the AP poll.




The new Coaches Poll is out, and not a whole lot has changed. With so many top 25 teams not playing over the weekend, plus no major upsets, there wasn't much room for teams to maneuver. In fact, the top 11 teams remain the same as last week.


We don't see any movement until we get to No. 12, where we find Wisconsin. The Badgers climbed two spots in the poll after stomping Michigan 49-11 on Saturday night on the road. This week's highest climber in the poll -- among teams that were already ranked -- is Northwestern, which moved up three spots to No. 20 after a 27-20 road win against a Purdue team that entered the game 2-0.


The only newcomers to the poll this week are No. 24 North Carolina, which beat Wake Forest 59-53 in a glorified seven-on-seven drill, and No. 25 Louisiana is back in the rankings after beating South Alabama 38-10.
