Little change atop college grid polls

NEW YORK — For a change, there was little change at the top of the Top 25.

Ohio State was No. 1 with Boston College second and LSU third, which is how they they lined up last week. It's just the second time this season the top three was unchanged, the other being Week 1, when the preseason top three held their spots in the first regular season poll.

The only changes in the top seven this week were minor with No. 4 Oregon and No. 5 Oklahoma switching places and No. 6 Arizona State and No. 7 West Virginia flip-flopping.

Ohio State received 59 of 65 first-place votes. BC got one first-place vote, LSU had three and Arizona State received two.

Stability at last? Not quite.

The remainder of the media poll received a major shake-up, with five teams falling out and Connecticut moving into the ranking for the first time in school history.

The Big East-leading Huskies, who became a full-fledged member of Division I-A in 2002, were No. 16 after beating South Florida 22-15 on Saturday. Division I-A is now called the Bowl Subdivision.
