Winning the biggest game of college football's opening weekend boosted LSU to No. 2 in The Associated Press Top 25.

Oregon dropped nine spots to No. 13 and defending national champion Auburn, which started the season at No. 23, fell out of the Top 25 after needing a late rally to beat Utah State at home. Notre Dame also dropped out.
