The 2010 college football season saw many schools end the year ranked in the AP Poll that normally are unranked.
Subsequently, many powerhouse schools such as Texas, Florida, USC, and Georgia were left out of the final polls.
This will change in 2011.
In order to make room for the regulars to rejoin the top 25, some of the schools who finished the season ranked will not do so again in 2011.
Here are ten schools that finished the 2010 season ranked in the AP Top 25 that will not finish in the polls this season.
North Carolina State capped off a good 2010 season with a victory of West Virginia in the Champs Sports Bowl.
Even with quarterback Russell Wilson returning, the Wolfpack won't have enough to stay ranked in what will be an improved ACC.
After a shaky start, Tulsa rattled off seven wins to close the 2010 season.
With three of their first four games in 2011 against Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Boise State, don't expect Tulsa to be ranked next season.
Even with new head coach Randy Edsall, the Terrapins will fall short in 2011.
The Terrapins must replace both of their starting receivers, along with playing non-conference games against West Virginia and Notre Dame.
These challenges will amount to too much for Maryland in 2011.
After shocking Georgia in the Liberty Bowl, UCF will come back down to Earth in 2011.
With only four returning starters on defense and a road trip to Provo against BYU on the schedule, the Knights will not have a good enough season to be ranked in 2011.
The Cornhuskers will find the Big 10 a little more difficult than the Big 12 North in 2011.
Teams like Iowa State and Colorado are now replaced with the likes of Ohio State and Wisconsin.
It may take a year or two for Nebraska to find its stride in the Big 10.
Since Coach Gary Pinkel's arrival in 2001, Missouri has made great strides in becoming a football power.
They will not fall totally off the map in 2011, but they will face their share of struggles.
The Tigers lost quarterback Blaine Gabbert to the NFL Draft. Also, they will have to face the six schools that used to be part of the Big 12 South.
Michigan State had a magical 2010 season, going 11-2 and winning a share of the Big 10 title.
2011 will not be a repeat.
Sparty loses ten returning starters, and there is no way the ball will bounce their way as many times as it did in 2010.
The Razorbacks had a great 2010 season, earning a Sugar Bowl bid and finishing with a 10-3 record.
However, the SEC is too tough this year for a Ryan Mallett-less Arkansas squad. The Razorbacks will not be ranked once the 2011 season is complete.
Nevada gave Boise State their only loss in 2010 in the biggest game in WAC history, helping them win the conference and finish the season 13-1.
With the departure of do-it-all quarterback Colin Kaepernick and road trips to Oregon, Texas Tech and Boise State, the Wolf Pack will take a couple steps back in 2011.
Oh how the mighty will fall.
Replacing Cam Newton won't be the only change Auburn will have to endure. Only eight starters return for the champs in 2011.
Road games against South Carolina, LSU and Georgia will prove very difficult for the Tigers as well.
As good as 2010 was for Auburn, 2011 may be just as bad.
