Kansas, Missouri move into top 10

Monday, October 29, 2007

NEW YORK -- For a change, there was little change at the top of the Top 25.

Ohio State was No. 1 with Boston College second and LSU third, which is how they they lined up last week. It's just the second time this season the top three was unchanged, the other being Week 1, when the preseason top three held their spots in the first regular season poll.

The only changes in the top seven this week were minor, with No. 4 Oregon and No. 5 Oklahoma switching places and No. 6 Arizona State and No. 7 West Virginia flip-flopping.

Ohio State received 59 of 65 first-place votes. BC got one first-place vote, LSU had three and Arizona State received two.

For the past month, the top of the poll has been scrambled weekly.

Last week, only two teams in the top 10 held their spots and Boston College became the fifth team this season to hold the No. 2 spot.

This week, the entire top seven either won or was off.

So the scrambling started at No. 8, where unbeaten Kansas landed after moving up four spots. No. 9 Missouri also moved up four and Georgia jumped 10 places to No. 10 after beating Florida 42-30.
