Statement loss for Washington Huskies and AP poll gridlock

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Also moving into the rankings this week were No. 23 Northern Illinois (5-0) and No. 24 Virginia Tech (5-1).

Moving out: Mississippi dropped out of the rankings after a second straight loss in the state of Alabama. The Rebels lost 30-22 to Auburn on Saturday after being shut out by Alabama the week before.

But with Missouri moving into the Top 25, the Southeastern Conference still has seven ranked teams, which matches a record for one league. The ACC and Big Ten have also done it, but no league has done it more than the SEC.

Also out of the rankings this week are Arizona State and Maryland. The Terps’ one-week stay ended with a 63-0 loss to No. 6 Florida State. That matched the most-lopsided loss ever by a ranked team.

FROM THE ARCHIVE: No. 15 Baylor moved up two spots after beating West Virginia 73-42. It’s the sixth time this season that a ranked team has scored 70 or more points. That matches the most (1944 and 1995) in a season.
