Iowa moved to No. 3 in The Associated Press college football poll, taking advantage of the first losses by Ohio State and Oklahoma State to slip in behind No. 1 Clemson and No. 2 Alabama.

Notre Dame is fourth and Oklahoma is fifth.

The unbeaten Hawkeyes (11-0) have their best ranking since being No. 3 in 2002. They have clinched the Big Ten West and a spot in the conference title on Dec. 5.

Michigan State jumped three spots to No. 6 after upsetting Ohio State 17-14 on Saturday. The Buckeyes, who began the season as a unanimous No. 1 and slipped to No. 2 earlier this month, fell to eighth.

Oklahoma State’s 45-35 loss to Baylor dropped the Cowboys from fourth to ninth and pushed Baylor to seventh.

OUT

Four teams dropped out of the rankings after losing, including LSU and Utah, which were both ranked in the top five earlier this season.

The Tigers have lost three straight since topping out at No. 4 on Oct. 31.

The Utes were No. 3 midway through October, but are 2-3 since. Utah lost to UCLA on Saturday after falling in overtime last week to Arizona.

Wisconsin and Southern California also dropped out.

IN

All four teams that moved into the rankings this week have already been there previously this season.

No. 24 Toledo is back in to represent the Mid-American Conference. No. 25 Temple gives the American Athletic Conference three ranked teams, joining No. 16 Navy and No. 21 Houston.

No. 23 Mississippi State and No. 22 UCLA also are ranked again after victories.
