Minnesota coach Jerry Kill was released from the hospital Sunday, a day after he had a seizure in the locker room after a loss to Northwestern.

University physician Dr. Pat Smith issued a statement saying Kill is “in excellent health.” Kill has struggled with seizures for years, including several times last season.

School officials did not provide a status for next Saturday's game at Wisconsin. But Kill has never missed a game because of seizures, and Smith said the coach plans to be back in the office Monday.

K-State, Notre Dame move into top 5

The top five of the Associated Press poll was rearranged for the second straight week, with Florida, Kansas State and Notre Dame moving up.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon held the top two spots for a fourth straight week. The changes came behind them, where the Gators moved up a spot to No. 3, and the fourth-ranked Wildcats and fifth-ranked Fighting Irish jumped two places each.

At No. 25, Ohio is ranked for the first time since 1968.
