COLUMBIA — Missouri moved into the Top 10 in the AP poll after its 36-17 win against Florida.

Missouri was ranked No. 5, while its next opponent, South Carolina, lost to Tennessee and fell to No. 20 in the weekly rankings.

Losses by Louisville, Clemson, Texas A&M, LSU and UCLA helped elevate the Tigers from No. 14.

The loss by Clemson shook up the top four teams; Alabama and Oregon stayed at No. 1 and No. 2, respectively. Ohio State stayed at No. 4, while Florida State jumped ahead to No. 3.

In the SEC, Auburn moved to No. 11 from No. 24 after beating Texas A&M, which fell to No. 14 from No. 7. After upsets Saturday, LSU fell to No. 13, and Georgia and Florida dropped out of the Top 25.

BCS rankings are expected to be released later Sunday.
