ESPN has dropped its latest installment of weekly power rankings, and as usual, there was some shifting in the ranks. Four new teams made the cut -- BYU, Wisconsin, Northwestern and the surprising Temple Owls -- but the real story was the fall experienced by the Auburn Tigers.
Auburn was No. 7 in last week's rankings, but checks in now at No. 21 after barely escaping FCS Jacksonville State in overtime yesterday. The second-biggest faller was Notre Dame, which dropped from No. 4 to No, 8 after escaping Charlottesville with a last-second win over Virginia.
