The Tigers and Seminoles switched spots after Florida State beat South Florida and LSU struggled early against Towson.
After a 30-17 victory over the South Florida Bulls, the Florida State Seminoles moved into the No. 3 spot in this week's Associated Press Top 25 poll, leaping the No. 4 LSU Tigers as we head into October.
The Seminoles squeaked by the Tigers, landing just 39 points ahead of LSU for the No. 3 spot. The Oregon Ducks continued their stay at No. 2 for a second week, as the Ducks' 51-26 victory over the Washington State Cougars was enough to hold off Florida State's charge.
All three teams continue to chase the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide. The Tide continue to ride atop the poll, collecting all 60 available first-place votes.
With the previously No. 8 Cardinal out of the way, West Virginia climbed from No. 9 to No. 8 on the strength of their 70-63 victory over the Baylor Bears, while Texas jumped from No. 12 to No. 11 in this week's poll.
