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.
The top five in the poll was rearranged for a second straight week, with Florida, Kansas State and Notre Dame moving up in the rankings.
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.
