South Carolina, Florida and West Virginia moved into the top five of The Associated Press poll after a Saturday during which nine Top 25 teams lost.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon held their spots at the top. Alabama is a unanimous No. 1 again, but the rest of the poll got a makeover.

No. 3 South Carolina, off a 35-7 victory against Georgia, moved up three spots. No. 4 Florida jumped six after beating LSU, 14-6. No. 5 West Virginia moved up three with a 48-45 victory at Texas.

No. 6 Kansas State, No. 7 Notre Dame and No. 8 Ohio State also moved up. LSU dropped to No. 9, and unbeaten Oregon State was No. 10.

The most recent time nine ranked teams lost in the same week was the weekend of Oct. 18, 2008.

Alabama is atop the season's first Harris Poll, a component of the BCS rankings. Oregon is No. 2, followed by South Carolina, West Virginia and Kansas State.

Georgia players' house ‘egged and rolled'

Georgia linebacker Christian Robinson said on his Twitter account that he returned from the Bulldogs' lopsided loss at South Carolina on Saturday night to find a house he shares with quarterback Aaron Murray “egged and rolled.”

Georgia was No. 5 before the 35-7 loss to South Carolina. It fell to No. 14 on Sunday.

Robinson concluded the toilet paper and eggs on the house were a result of the loss. He posted on his Twitter account, “Seems that people turn on you when you're not perfect. Thought we were in this together.”

TCU brass meet to discuss suspended QB

TCU coach Gary Patterson met with the school's chancellor and athletic director about suspended quarterback Casey Pachall. Patterson said he couldn't say anything more about Pachall until after some other things got done. He wouldn't elaborate.

Pachall was indefinitely suspended after being arrested Thursday on suspicion of driving while intoxicated. That came eight months after the junior quarterback admitted to police that he smoked marijuana and failed a team-administered drug test.
