Oklahoma and Northwestern dropped down to No. 19 and No. 19 respectively, while USC, Georgia, and Cal all dropped out of this week's poll. Houston appeared in the poll this week at No. 24, and Duke at No. 25

In the Coaches Poll, Baylor jumped TCU for the No. 2 spot, with TCU at No. 3 and Michigan State at No. 4. Oklahoma dropped down to No. 19 after being upset against Texas in the Red River rivalry. Northwestern dropped to No. 21 after losing 38-0 to Michigan, who leaped to No. 14, up seven spots from last week's poll. Oklahoma State also saw a good jump, up four spots to No. 15. Iowa jumped six spots to No. 17.

Georgia and Cal both dropped out of the poll after suffering in-conference losses Saturday. USC also fell out of the poll after suffering a loss at home to Washington. Newcomers to the poll include Duke at No. 24 and Toledo at No. 25.
