Arkansas from 8th to OUT.
By RALPH D. RUSSO, Associated Press
NEW YORK (AP) — Arkansas has taken the second-largest fall out of the AP college football poll, dropping from eighth to unranked after losing to Louisiana-Monroe.
The Razorbacks were upset 34-31 in overtime after losing quarterback Tyler Wilson to an injury. The only team to take a more drastic fall from the poll was Michigan in 2007. The Wolverines opened the season at No. 5 and dropped out after a Week 1 loss to Appalachian State.
Alabama remains No. 1. Southern California is No. 2, followed by LSU and Oregon. Florida State moved into a tie for fifth with Oklahoma. Georgia is No. 7.
Arkansas was one of four teams to drop out after losses, along with Nebraska, Wisconsin and Oklahoma State.
Moving in were UCLA, Tennessee, Arizona and BYU.

Don't matter....Bama, LSU, and USC control their own destiny at this point. Everyone else needs help.

Oregon controls their own fate also...
True.....forgot about them.
Tied for 5th with wins over Murray State 69-3 and Savannah State 55-0 and with their killer schedule could be a team to watch out for.
We do control our own destiny but we have a tough road ahead and there's a chance that we could be sitting there at the end of the year with one loss, lobbying for the right to go to the championship. The fans reveling in Arky's loss are being a bit shortsighted.
Agreed. At minimum they'll have three losses if everything goes well for them. LA Monroe, Bama, and LSU. That hurts big time for our SOS if it's another close vote.
