Wisconsin back in AP Top 25, at No. 24

After dropping last week to the unofficial 26th spot after their Week 1 loss to Alabama, the Wisconsin Badgers jump to No. 24 in the AP Top 25 after a 58-0 victory against Miami (Ohio). Four Big Ten teams made it on the list.

Three Southeastern Conference teams fall out of the poll and Auburn drops 12 spots after the league that set a record for most teams in the college football rankings last week had a rough weekend.

Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi State all drop out after losses Saturday. The Tigers needed overtime to beat Jacksonville State of the FCS and slip from No. 6 to No. 18.

The SEC was down to seven ranked teams, still the most of any conference.

Ohio State remains No. 1, but the Buckeyes are no longer unanimous. No. 4 Michigan State receives two first-place votes after beating Oregon 31-28. Alabama remains No. 2. TCU is 3.

No. 19 BYU jumped into the rankings after beating Boise State and knocking out the Broncos. The Cougars were ranked for four weeks early last season before star QB Taysom Hill was injured. Hill went down again in the season opener at Nebraska, but Tanner Mangum has led BYU to two straight victories with late long touchdown pass.

The Northwestern Wildcats are ranked for the first time since October 2013.
