College Football: Vandy back in poll after long absence

Associated Press
NEW YORK ó The Southeastern Conference needs to find another pushover.
Vanderbilt, for years the weakest team in college football’s toughest league, moved into the AP Top 25 on Sunday for the first time in 24 years.
The unbeaten Commodores are No. 21 in the latest rankings.
At the top of The Associated Press media poll, little changed after No. 1 Southern California and No. 2 Oklahoma had the week off.
No. 3 Georgia and No. 4 Florida held their spots and LSU moved up one place.
Last week the SEC became the first league to have five teams in the AP top 10, but Auburn dropped five spots from No. 10 to 15th this week, leaving the SEC with four in the top 10, including No. 8 Alabama.
The Big 12 also has four top-10 teams with Oklahoma joined by No. 6 Missouri, No. 7 Texas and No. 10 Texas Tech. Wisconsin is No. 9.
Two more teams from non BCS conferences crashed the gates, too. No. 24 TCU was ranked for the first time this year and No. 19 Boise State won at Oregon 37-32.
No. 11 BYU is one of three Mountain West Conference teams in the latest Top 25.
East Carolina dropped eight spots to No. 23.
Penn State is No. 12, followed by South Florida (the only ranked Big East team), Ohio State and Auburn.
Wake Forest is 16th, followed by Utah, Kansas, Boise State and Clemson.
The final five are Illinois, Vanderbilt, East Carolina, TCU and Fresno State. Falling out after losses were Florida State, Oregon and West Virginia.
