NEW YORK (AP/WIS) - The University of South Carolina has moved up in the AP college football poll this week. USC is ranked 8th after beating East Carolina Saturday 48-10.
The Gamecocks were ranked 9th last week.
Arkansas has taken the second-largest fall out of the AP poll, dropping from eighth to unranked after losing to Louisiana-Monroe.
The Razorbacks were upset 34-31 in overtime after losing quarterback Tyler Wilson to an injury. The only team to take a more drastic fall from the poll was Michigan in 2007. The Wolverines opened the season at No. 5 and dropped out after a Week 1 loss to Appalachian State.
Alabama remains No. 1. Southern California is No. 2, followed by LSU and Oregon. Florida State moved into a tie for fifth with Oklahoma. Georgia is No. 7.
Arkansas was one of four teams to drop out after losses, along with Nebraska, Wisconsin and Oklahoma State.
Moving in were UCLA, Tennessee, Arizona and BYU.
Clemson moved up one spot to 11th after defeating Ball State 52-27 Saturday.
