Irish can't crack Top 25

Despite a 59-33 win over Air Force, Notre Dame is still on the outside looking in for the Associated Press Top 25 Poll.

The Irish are receiving more votes than a week ago, and are now three spots out of the Top 25 at 28.

Notre Dame has won four straight games after its 0-2 start. There are two 2-loss teams in the top 25--Texas A&M at 21 and Auburn at 24.

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.

Michigan is ranked 11th. Michigan State moved back into the top 25 at 23.

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.
