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 Brigham Young.
UCLA: ranking and respect. The Bruins kept their raucous celebration to the locker room, with only a few tweeted photos providing any evidence.
By the time the Bruins emerged from their Rose Bowl party following their 36-30 victory over Nebraska on Saturday night, they were all business again, insisting it was just another victory.
It sure felt like more than that after a long-struggling program flattened a perennial college football power.
With a new coaching staff, an exciting freshman quarterback, and what certainly seems to be a novel attitude toward success, these Bruins are off to a strong start in the lengthy task of fixing 15 years of mostly mediocre football at UCLA.
The Bruins (2-0) cracked the AP poll at No. 22, earning their first ranking in more than four years.
Arkansas reeling. The Razorbacks face a difficult road in the wake of Saturday night's stunning, 34-31 overtime loss to Louisiana-Monroe.
Arkansas (1-1) played the second half and overtime without starting quarterback Tyler Wilson, who stayed in Little Rock following the upset after a hit to the head. Coach John L. Smith said Wilson's prognosis is good for this week's matchup against No. 1 Alabama.
It remains to be seen how the team reacts following such an unexpected loss.
The Razorbacks were the first top-10 team to lose to a team from the Sun Belt Conference.
Georgia passes test. When the Bulldogs trailed Missouri by 17-9 in the third quarter Saturday night, it looked like the kind of early-season test that Georgia has often failed in recent seasons.
Georgia fans don't have to be reminded of two straight losses to South Carolina, a September road loss to Mississippi State in 2010, or season-opening losses at Oklahoma State in 2010 and to Boise State last season.
Those losses left Georgia in early-season ruts. This time, the No. 7 Bulldogs passed their September test with an impressive finish to beat Missouri, 41-20.
The win left Georgia with its first 2-0 start in four years and in position to build on that momentum with a stretch of three straight home games that begins with Saturday's visit from Florida Atlantic.
Miami linebacker out. Hurricanes coach Al Golden said linebacker Ramon Buchanan will miss the rest of the season with a right knee injury and safety Vaughn Telemaque is out for this week's game against Bethune-Cookman with a left knee injury.
They were hurt in Saturday's 52-13 loss to Kansas State, as was wide receiver Allen Hurns, whose immediate future is unclear because of a head injury. He also dealt with one during training camp and was checked for a concussion on Saturday.
Buchanan and Telemaque continued to play after getting hurt. Golden said he was unaware of the extent of both injuries until Sunday.
Miami (1-1) has allowed 1,035 yards and 84 points in its two games.
Doctors unsure. A Tulane University doctor said it is not yet clear if a football player who suffered a spinal injury while making a tackle will be paralyzed.
Greg Stewart, Tulane's director of sports medicine, said the full extent of Devon Walker's injury may not become clear until midweek.
Stewart said doctors do not yet know what the long-term implications and outcomes of Walker's injury will be.
Stewart said Walker was talking with doctors as he was being treated.
