Sundown: No Florida schools in AP Top 25
Sunday, October 9, 2011
MIAMI (AP) -- Florida is out of The Associated Press Top 25 poll.
Not just the Gators -- the entire state.
For the first time since Dec. 6, 1982, no team from the Sunshine State is in the AP poll. Florida dropped out after losing to No. 1 LSU 41-11 on Saturday, and preseason national-title hopeful Florida State continued its freefall by losing at Wake Forest 35-30.
The top 10 teams in the poll were unchanged. No. 1 LSU, No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Oklahoma, No. 5 Boise State, No. 6 Oklahoma State, No. 7 Stanford, No. 8 Clemson, No. 9 Oregon and No. 10 Arkansas all won by an average of 34.4 points. No. 4 Wisconsin was idle.
Texas fell 11 spots to No. 22 after losing 55-17 to Oklahoma. Michigan State and Houston moved into the poll at No. 23 and No. 25 respectively.
