G G G G G e t y The American Athletic C onference wants to be considered closer in quality to the Power Five conferences than it is to its fellow Group of Five leagues. That claim is backed u p by the results this seas on, including an American uprising in the AP Top 25. M emphis and Temple jumped into The Associated Press college football p oll for the first time this season, joining Houston to give the American Athlet- i c Conference three ranked teams for the first t ime in the history of the three-year old league. Ohio State remained N o. 1in the AP Top 25 released Sunday. For the second straight week, six t eams received first- place votes in the media p oll, led by the Buckeyes with 28. No. 2 Baylor has 12, No. 3 Utah received 16, No. 4 TCU got three and No. 5 LSU and No. 6 Clemson each have one. Michigan State stayed a t No. 7 after its miracle against Michigan and Alabama is No. 8 after handing Texas A&M its first loss. Memphis (6-0) had the big upset of the weekend against Mississippi. The Tigers 37-24 victory vaulted them into the rankings at No 18. “It’s one of the biggest w ins we’ve had. It may be the most important based o n where we are now,” Commissioner Mike Aresco said Sunday. M emphis has only been r anked two other times: For one week during the 2 004 season the Tigers were 25th and in the final p oll of last season they were 25th. T emple (6-0) was ranked No. 22. The Owls are in the AP poll for the first time since the final 1979 rankings. “I’m really proud of our players and it’s a trib- u te to them that people have noticed how they have played to this point,” Temple coach Matt Rhule. No. 21Houston is also 6-0 under new coach Tom Herman. The American is what is left of the old Big East football conference after realignment stripped it of many of its top schools, s uch as Pittsburgh, West Virginia and Louisville. A resco kept the conference alive by wooing a handful of Conference U SA teams to create a 12- t eam conference. The switch from the B CS to the College Foot- ball Playoff bumped the A merican into the Group of Five and out of the soc alled power conferences that include the Atlantic Coast Conference, Big 12, Big Ten, Pac-12 and Southeastern Conference. But the American has held its own against the P ower Five this season, going 7-11with wins against Penn State, Miami and Louisville. The Mountain West, Mid-American Conference, Sun Belt and Conference USA are a combined 9-73 against the Power Five teams. Aresco said he hopes coaching and a commitment from administra- t ions that have been willing to invest in their foot- b all programs will help the American sustain success. F or this season, the A merican is well-positioned to earn the spot s aved for the highest ranked champion from t he Group of Five in the New Year’s Six bowls, b ut Aresco is thinking bigger. In: Pittsburgh moved into the rankings at No. 25 and is off to a 5-1start under new coach Pat Narduzzi. The Panthers a re ranked for the first time since the 2010 preseason poll. Out: UCLA, Northwestern and Boise State each took their second losses of the season and fell out of the rankings. Up: No. 10 Stanford and No. 12 Iowa each moved up five spots after victories and against c onference rivals. Down: The biggest d rops this week were all in the Southeastern Conference. No. 24 Missis- s ippi fell 11spots after b eing upset at Memphis. Texas A&M dropped six p laces into a tie for 15th. COLLEGE FOOTBALL Memphis, Temple join Houston in AP Top 25 DERIK HAMILTON-USA TODAY SPORTS Temple running back Jahad Thomas (5) celebrates with teammates after victory over UCF on S aturday night. The Owlsare in the AP poll for the first time since the final 1979 rankings. RALPH D. RUSSO ASSOCIATED PRESS Move over, Little Gia nts. You too, Rocket. Michigan State’s latest last-second touch- d own doesn’t have a name yet, but even compared to the Spartans’ previous dramatics under coach Mark Dantonio, this victory over Michigan was on an en- t irely different level. “ It’s soaking in, but at the same time, it’s probably just like it is on the o ther end,” Dantonio said Sunday. “A little bit (of a) ‘What just hap- p ened?’ type of thing.” In addition to all the victories the Spartans h ave also enjoyed their share of last-second cel- e brations. In 2010, Michigan State beat Notre Dame by scoring a t ouchdown on a fake field goal in overtime. That play was called “ Little Giants” — and the following season, “Rocke t” entered Spartans lore when Kirk Cousins heaved a pass that caromed to receiver Keith Nichol for a 44-yard TD that gave Michigan State a 37-31win over W isconsin. Those wins were amazing, and obviously memorable, but beating Michigan is always different for the Spartans. And b eating Michigan on a play like Saturday’s is almost indescribable. Lead- i ng 23-21, the Wolverines lined up to punt from around midfield with only 10 seconds left, but punter Blake O’Neill fumbled the snap, and in the ensuing scramble, Michigan S tate’s Jalen Watts-Jacks on ended up with the ball and went 38 yards for a touchdown and a 27-23 w in. “Our players believed that they could block it or s omething would happen,” Dantonio said. “Something obviously h appened.” Watts-Jackson hurt h imself on the play and had surgery on his hip Sunday at University of M ichigan hospital. That was only part of the fallout from the game’s ext raordinary ending. The Spartans re- m ained at No. 7 in the AP poll Sunday, and Michigan fell three spots into a tie at No. 15. “Honestly, it just felt like a dream,” Spartans quarterback Connor Cook s aid. “I’ve never felt anything like that.” COLLEGE FOOTBALL Michigan State hits in last-second ASSOCIATED PRESS Michigan State players pile on defensive back Jalen W atts-Jackson after he recovered a fumbled snap on a punt.
