Arkansas moves to #12 in AP, #13 in Coaches Poll

NEW YORK (AP) - The combination of impressive victories by

Alabama and Ohio State, a stunning loss by Virginia Tech, led to

Boise State losing all but one of its first-place votes in the AP

Top 25.

The Broncos are still No. 3, behind the top-ranked Tide and No.

2 Buckeyes, but the gap between Boise State and the top two has

widened.

Alabama received 52 first-place votes and 1,466 points. Ohio

State had five first-place votes and 1,410 points. Boise State

received 1,306 points.

TCU remained fourth and Oregon jumped two spots to No. 5 after

winning 48-13 at Tennessee.

After Boise State beat Virginia Tech last Monday night in

Landover, Md., the Broncos received eight first-place votes from

the media panel and were only 13 points behind No. 2 Ohio State.
