NEW YORK (AP) — Auburn has jumped two spots to No. 3 behind top-ranked Oregon and Boise State in The Associated Press college football poll.
The Tigers have their highest ranking since they were No. 2 in 2006 after beating LSU 24-17 on Saturday in a matchup of the Southeastern Conference's last unbeaten teams.
TCU is No. 4, Michigan State is fifth and Alabama is No. 6.
No. 7 Missouri made the largest jump in the poll, moving 11 spots after beating previously undefeated Oklahoma 36-27. The Sooners dropped eight spots to No. 11.
Missouri was last ranked this highly in 2007, when the Tigers reached No. 1 and finished the season No. 4.
No. 25 Baylor (6-2) is ranked for the first time since Sept. 5, 1993, when the Bears were No. 24 for a week.
