NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

The LSU Tigers showed their teeth this week with a blowout win over No. 18 Auburn and two of the nation's top teams lost to underdog contenders, shaking up the college football top 25 rankings.

Leonard Fournette made his presence felt early and often, rushing for three touchdowns to lead No. 13 LSU over No. 18 Auburn, Saturday in Baton Rouge.

LSU (2-0, 2-0) was led by Fournette who finished with 228 yards on 19 carries to go along with his three scores. Brandon Harris recorded 74 yards and one touchdown on 12-of-17 passing.

No. 2 Alabama fell 43-37 to the 15th ranked Ole Miss Rebels at home. Unranked Stanford pulled off the upset over No. 6 USC 41-31 after racking up 474 yards of offense.
    
Ohio State showed their vulnerability against Northern Illinois, dropping five turnovers in their 20-13 win. Championship QB Cardale Jones threw two interceptions early and was benched in the second quarter in favor of J.T. Barrett who had one TD pass and one interception to close out the game.

The AP Top 25 is determined by a simple points system based on how each voter ranks college football's best teams. A team receives 25 points for each first place vote, 24 for second place and so on through to the 25th team, which receives one point. The rankings are set by listing the teams' point totals from highest to lowest. Fox 8's Garland Gillen is one of those voters.

This is Garland Gillen's 6th year as a voter for the Associated Press poll.
