Loss drops Rutgers out of AP Poll's top 25

Saturday's disappointing 35-23 loss to the Kent St. Golden Flashes had an impact on more than the win-loss columns for the Rutgers Scarlet Knights football program. On Sunday, Rutgers (7-1) was voted out of the AP Poll's top 25 after being ranked No. 19 last week. The Scarlet Knight remained in the USA Today Coaches' Poll.

Rutgers dropping out means only the Louisville Cardinals (No. 12) are the only Big East Conference member remaining in the rankings. The Cardinals defeated the Cincinnati Bearcats, 34-31, at home. Both Louisville and Rutgers still remain unbeaten in Big East play.

Overall, four of the top five teams remained the same. The only changes made was the Kansas St. Wildcats and Notre Dame Fighting Irish moving up to No. 3 and 4, respectively. Both teams benefited from victories and the Florida Gators (No. 8) losing and falling out of the top 5. The Alabama Crimson Tide remained No. 1 while the Oregon Ducks are still No. 2.

Overall, Rutgers is one of two Big East Conference programs still ranked, as the Louisville Cardinals cracked the top 10 (No. 10) after earning a 34-31 victory over the Cincinnati Bearcats. The Cardinals and Scarlet Knights remain unbeaten in league play.

Meanwhile, the top team in the country remains the Alabama Crimson Tide, which earned all of the 59 first-place votes. The Oregon Ducks stayed at No. 2, but both the Kansas St. Wildcats (No. 3) and Notre Dame Fighting Irish (No. 4) moved up after victories and a loss by the Florida Gators (No. 8).

2012 College Football Rankings: USC Drops To No. 2 In AP Poll

The Syracuse Orange will not play the No. 1 program in college football Saturday at MetLife Stadium; instead, the Orange will have to settle for playing No. 2. The USC Trojans, SU's New York's College Classic opponent, dropped down a spot in the latest AP Poll, which was released Tuesday.

Leapfrogging the Trojans were the Alabama Crimson Tide, who steamrolled the Michigan Wolverines, 41-14, on Saturday. USC's 49-10 rout of the Hawaii Warriors did not impress the pollsters as much.
