Syracuse Still On Top Of "USA Today" Poll

The undefeated Orange received all 32 first-place votes to retain the top spot in this week's "USA Today" poll after a pair of scares last week. Syracuse is now 25-and-0 on the season. Florida leapfrogged Wichita State for second place, with the 27-and-0 Shockers now third. Arizona fell from third to fourth after a double-overtime loss to Arizona State on Friday. Louisville is fifth. Duke, San Diego State, Kansas, Cincinnati and Saint Louis round out the top-10. Pittsburgh and Oklahoma dropped out of the this week's top-25.

Alex Collins ran for 130 yards and three touchdowns as the Missouri Tigers fell to Arkansas, 28-3, Friday afternoon at Reynolds Razorback Stadium. The defense for Mizzou could have hardly started any better, as they allowed positive yardage on just one of Arkansas' first eight plays. In all, five of those eight plays went for negative yardage, including a Ricky Hatley sack to give the defense two three-and-outs to start the game.
