NEW YORK (AP) -- Florida moved up six spots to No. 4 in The Associated Press college football poll after knocking off former No. 4 LSU at home on Saturday.
The Gators, along with South Carolina and West Virginia, move into the top five after a Saturday during which nine Top 25 teams lost.
Florida State, formerly No. 3, lost in Raleigh, N.C., to NC State, essentially extinguishing their hopes for a national title.
No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon hold their spots at the top of the rankings. Alabama is a unanimous No. 1 again. The rest of Top 25 got a makeover.
No. 3 South Carolina, off a 35-7 victory against Georgia, moves up three spots. No. 4 Florida jumps six after beating LSU 14-6. No. 5 West Virginia moves up three with a 48-45 victory at Texas.
No. 6 Kansas State, No. 7 Notre Dame and No. 8 Ohio State also move up. LSU drops to No. 9 and unbeaten Oregon State is No. 10.
The last time nine ranked teams lost in the same week was the weekend of Oct. 18, 2008.
