Badgers, Vols climb AP Top 25 after statement wins (0:51)

Wisconsin joins the top 10 of the AP poll after dominating Michigan State in East Lansing. Tennessee is rewarded with a three-spot bump after beating Florida for the first time since 2004. (0:51)

Wisconsin moved up to No. 8 in The Associated Press college football poll, and LSU became the second preseason top-10 team to drop out of the rankings in the first month of the season.

There were few changes in the Top 25, as the only four ranked teams that lost did so to other ranked teams.

The top teams held their spots, led by No. 1 Alabama. The Crimson Tide received 50 first-place votes. No. 2 Ohio State was followed by Louisville, Michigan, Clemson, Houston and Stanford.

Wisconsin moved up three spots after dominating Michigan State 30-6. It is the Badgers' best ranking since October 2011, when they reached No. 4. Texas A&M moved up a spot to No. 9.

LSU (2-2), which started the season No. 5, joined Notre Dame as preseason top-10 teams to fall out of the poll. LSU's fall cost coach Les Miles his job as he was fired, along with offensive coordinator Cam Cameron on Sunday, sources told ESPN, confirming a report by the Baton Rouge Advocate.

No. 16 Mississippi made the biggest jump of the week -- seven spots -- after a 45-14 victory against Georgia. No. 11 Tennessee and No. 13 Baylor each moved up three spots. No. 15 Nebraska moved up five spots, while No. 18 Utah jumped six spots.

No. 17 Michigan State dropped nine spots from No. 8. No. 25 Georgia dropped 13 spots from No. 12.

No. 24 Boise State is ranked for the first time since Oct. 11, 2015, giving the Mountain West two teams in the Top 25 (San Diego State is No. 19). No. 20 TCU is back in the rankings after falling out two weeks ago.

Oklahoma (1-2), which was No. 25 last week, fell out of the rankings during an off week. The Sooners are unranked for the first time since the end of the 2014 season.
