Auburn survives scare from Jacksonville State (1:27)

The No. 6 Tigers score a game-tying touchdown with less than a minute to play, then win on a Peyton Barber touchdown run in overtime as Auburn beats Jacksonville State 27-20. (1:27)

Three Southeastern Conference teams fell out of the Associated Press Top 25 on Sunday, and the Auburn Tigers dropped 12 spots after the league that set a record for most teams in the college football rankings last week had a rough weekend.

Arkansas, Tennessee and Mississippi State all fell out after losses Saturday. The Tigers needed overtime to beat Jacksonville State of the FCS; they slipped from No. 6 to No. 18.

Auburn will get a chance at redemption next week as the Tigers visit No. 13 LSU.

The SEC was down to seven ranked teams, still the most of any conference. The Pac-12 was next with five.

Ohio State remains No. 1, but the Buckeyes are no longer unanimous. No. 4 Michigan State receives two first-place votes after beating Oregon 31-28. Alabama remains No. 2. TCU is 3.

The Crimson Tide, which rolled past Middle Tennessee 37-10, start the conference portion of their slate next week by hosting No. 15 Ole Miss.

No. 19 BYU jumps into the rankings after beating Boise State and knocking the Broncos out of the poll. Next up for the Cougars and quarterback Tanner Mangum: No. 10 UCLA.

The other Top 25 matchup to be played in Week 3 is No. 8 Notre Dame, which lost quarterback Malik Zaire for the season, hosting No. 14 Georgia Tech.

The Yellow Jackets and quarterback Justin Thomas have put up more than 60 points in each of their first two games. The Irish will find out of DeShone Kizer can follow up his amazing debut off the bench in a 34-27 victory against Virginia.
