NEW YORK — Voters were apparently unimpressed with Ohio State's 38-14 victory over Penn State on Saturday. The Buckeyes remained No. 8 for the second week in a row.
Boise State jumped back ahead of TCU after the Horned Frogs played their closest game of the season.
No. 1 Oregon and No. 2 Auburn held their places, though the Ducks' narrow escape in a 15-13 victory Saturday night at California cost them 11 first-place votes and left them with 38.
Auburn, which erased an early 14-point deficit and beat Georgia 49-31, picked up 10 first-place votes for a total of 12.
Boise climbed to No. 3.
