Oregon is out of The Associated Press college football poll for the first time since 2009, snapping its streak of consecutive Top 25 appearances at 98.
The Ducks were blasted at home 62-20 by Utah on Saturday night. It was the most points ever allowed by the Ducks at Autzen Stadium and gave them two September losses for the first time since 2004.
The top six teams in the AP media poll were the same as last week with Ohio State No. 1, Michigan State No.2 and Mississippi No. 3.
One small difference, TCU was tied with Ole Miss last week. The Horned Frogs are now fourth after escaping from Texas Tech with a victory. Baylor is fifth and Notre Dame sixth.
Utah surged eight spots to No. 10 after beating the Ducks and received one first-place vote.

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.
