The fourth week of the 2014 college football season saw a few changes in the Top 25 of The Associated Press Poll. While teams without ranks won over Missouri and LSU, Oregon and Florida State had to literally struggle to hang onto their positions.
Although the football community was aware that the AP Poll would change, it was nevertheless surprised with some of the changes. The top five ranks are occupied by Florida State (1,439 points), Oregon (1,400 points), Alabama (1,377 points), Oklahoma (1,343 points), and Auburn (1,268 points).

The Bulldogs are a team to reckon with as the LSU could hardly handle the combination of receivers De’Runnya Wilson and Jameon Lewis and quarterback Dak Prescott. The team is now headed in the right direction and they got their victory when they needed it the most as they now have to face Auburn, which occupies the fifth rank, and Texas A&M, which occupies the sixth rank.
East Carolina is back in the Top 25 thanks to its 70-41 victory over North Carolina. Fox Sports’ Knox Bardeen says that the Pirates can be expected to hang onto their position in the AP Poll as they do not have “any ranked opponent” on its schedule for this season.
The biggest losers of the season so far are LSU, which fell to the 17th position from the 8th position after losing to Mississippi, and Missouri, which lost a home game to the Indiana Hoosiers by 31-27.
