NEW YORK -- The Oregon State Beavers moved up two spots to No. 8 in the Associated Press college football poll after a 42-24 win against BYU Saturday.

The Beavers were led by backup quarterback Cody Vaz who passed for 332 yards and had three touchdowns in his first start since high school.

No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Oregon hold the top two spots for a fourth straight week. The changes came behind them, where the Gators move up one spot to No. 3, and the fourth-ranked Wildcats and fifth-ranked Fighting Irish both jump two places.

The shuffling comes after a second straight Saturday in which multiple top-five teams lost. South Carolina fell 23-21 at LSU on Saturday night and drops from No. 3 to No. 9. West Virginia slides from No. 5 to No. 17 after getting routed 49-14 at Texas Tech. The Red Raiders move into the rankings at 18th.
