After big wins over ranked opponents, Georgia and Michigan have moved up in this week's Associated Press Top 25 poll. The losing schools in those games -- South Carolina and Notre Dame, respectively -- both slide down, as do Florida and Texas, who both lost to unranked opponents on the road. USC is out of the poll after a loss at home to Washington State, while Miami is in after their big win over Florida.

The full AP Top 25 for Week 3, with first-place votes in parentheses (also, the Coaches Poll, which will actually affect the BCS in a few weeks):

The AP Top 25 poll is everyone's favorite poll that doesn't really matter. Not a part of the BCS formula, the AP Poll is still considered by many as the go-to poll until the BCS rankings are released. It is a poll voted on by members of the media across the country.
