With an impressive 24-19 road victory over Oklahoma, the Kansas State Wildcats jumped from No. 15 last week to No. 7 in this week's Associated Press Top 25 Poll.

The Kansas State Wildcats (4-0) scored the biggest upset of the weekend, taking down the Oklahoma Sooners 24-19 in Norman on Saturday night. With the impressive victory, the Wildcats jumped from No. 15 last week to No. 7 in this week's Associated Press Top 25 Poll.

The Alabama Crimson Tide continue to sit atop the AP rankings, with the Oregon Ducks jumping the LSU Tigers to grab the No. 2 spot this week. LSU's less-than-impressive win over Auburn is the cause of the slide, though the Tigers still did garner one first place vote. Florida State and Georgia round out the Top 5 this week. With the loss to Kansas State, Oklahoma falls to No. 16 this week.

Three new teams jumped into the AP Poll this week: Oregon State at No. 18, Rutgers at No. 23, and Baylor at No. 25.
