Auburn moved up a spot to No. 3 in The Associated Press college football poll behind Mississippi State and Florida State ahead of a weekend stacked with Top 25 matchups.

The Tigers hopped past Alabama after a 35-31 victory at Mississippi on Saturday. Ole Miss dropped five spots to No. 12.

The Crimson Tide is fourth and heading to No. 14 LSU on Saturday, one of six games matching top 20 teams.

No. 5 Oregon visits No. 20 Utah. TCU jumped four spots to No. 6 after its last-second victory at West Virginia.

The Horned Frogs host No. 9 Kansas State.

Michigan State is seventh ahead of its Big Ten showdown with No. 13 Ohio State.

No. 8 Notre Dame, which slipped two spots after a close call against Navy, next plays at No. 11 Arizona State.

No. 10 Baylor plays at No. 19 Oklahoma.

Notre Dame LB out

Joe Schmidt wasn’t highly recruited, nor did many people project the linebacker would be a starter at Notre Dame.

Schmidt, however, defied those odds and this season became one of Notre Dame’s most important defensive players.

But Schmidt will miss the rest of the season after fracturing and dislocating his left ankle in Notre Dame’s victory over Navy on Saturday.

Schmidt led the Irish with 65 tackles this season.
