Baylor slid down after an embarrassing loss to to Oklahoma State. The No. 7 Pokes completely dominated every facet of the game in a 49-17 rout, which sent the Bears spiraling down the rankings to No. 9.
Ohio State stayed put after the No. 3 Buckeyes obliterated Indiana. OSU must only defeat Michigan next Saturday to cap off its second straight undefeated season under head coach Urban Meyer.
Oregon suffered an incredible blowout loss to a surprising opponent. The No. 13 Ducks were grounded on offense as the Arizona Wildcats picked up a 42-16 win in this Pac-12 showdown.

Wisconsin held the Minnesota Golden Gophers to one touchdown in a 20-7 win. The No. 15 Badgers are moving up the rankings ahead of their regular-season finale against Penn State.
A new addition to the Top 25 has the Duke Blue Devils checking in at No. 24, sandwiched between two traditional powerhouse programs in USC and Notre Dame. If the Blue Devils win next week against North Carolina, they will play Florida State in the ACC's conference championship game.
