Following a bye week, the Horned Frogs fell another spot in the AP Poll Sunday, moving from No. 4 to No. 5. The Frogs remained No. 3 in USA Today’s Amway Coaches Poll.

Despite previously No. 3 Utah falling to USC Saturday night in Los Angeles, the Frogs did not gain any ground in the AP Poll. Clemson’s 58-0 win over Miami propelled the Tigers to No. 3.

The Clemson Tigers weren’t the only Tigers to go ahead of the Frogs in the rankings this week. LSU took over the No. 4 spot after defeating Western Kentucky 48-20.

Ohio State retained their No. 1 ranking after defeating Rutgers 49-7. Baylor remained the No. 2 team in the nation, but faced a major setback in the loss of quarterback Seth Russell, who suffered a fractured neck bone late in a 45-27 win over Iowa State.

The Frogs will get a chance to pop back into the top four when they host West Virginia on Thursday night at 6:30 p.m.
