UNDATED (AP) -- The new Associated Press college football poll is out, and there are a couple unfamiliar names in the rankings. East Carolina is ranked in for the first time since 2008 and Mississippi State moved into the Top 25 for the first time in two seasons after breaking a long losing streak against LSU.
The Pirates are No. 23 after a record-setting 70-41 victory against North Carolina. ECU has beaten Atlantic Coast Conference teams the past two weeks after winning at Virginia Tech.
The Pirates were last ranked Sept. 21, 2008. That team finished 9-5 and won Conference USA. East Carolina (3-1) is in its first season in the American Athletic Conference.
Mississippi State is No. 14 after beating LSU 34-29 to end a 14-game skid to the Tigers. The Bulldogs were last ranked in 2012.
The top seven teams are the same as last week, starting with No. 1 Florida State, which escaped 23-17 in overtime against Clemson on Saturday night.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Heisman Trophy winner Jameis (JAYM'-ihs) Winston is back.
Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher announced his quarterback was once again the starter shortly after the top-ranked Seminoles survived their biggest regular-season scare since Winston earned the job at the start of 2013.
Winston cheered his teammates from the sideline Saturday night as Florida State squeaked by Clemson 23-17 in overtime at home. He was serving a one-game suspension for making "offensive and vulgar" comments about female anatomy on campus Tuesday. The schedule now favors the 3-0 Seminoles, who don't play any ranked opponents for the next 26 days.
The winner of Florida State-Clemson has played in the ACC championship the last five years.
"We ain't lost in 19 straight games," Fisher said. "We are No. 1 till somebody beats us."
NFL-WEEK 3 SCHEDULE
UNDATED (AP) -- After a tumultuous week of sad off-the-field headlines that included a NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell's (guh-DEHLZ') mea culpa Friday admitting he has erred on failing to provide tougher personal conduct rules for players, the focus is back today to where the league wants it -- on the field.
Week 3 action sees the seven undefeated NFL teams facing various tests, including three playing later today and tonight.
The 2-0 Arizona Cardinals try to keep their perfect season going when they host 1-1 San Francisco.
Peyton Manning leads the 2-0 Denver Broncos into Seattle to play the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks, who are 1-1. This is a rematch of last February's Super Bowl.
Winless Kansas City hits the road in search of its first victory when it takes on 1-1 Miami.
And the Sunday night game features the 2-0 Carolina Panthers hosting the 1-1 Pittsburgh Steelers.
LOUDON, N.H. (AP) -- Brad Keselowski is trying to become the first Ford driver to win three straight Sprint Cup races since Rusty Wallace in June 1994 if he gets the checkered flag today at New Hampshire, the second of 10 Chase for the Sprint Cup playoff races.
Keselowski and Jeff Gordon have finished 1-2 in the last two Sprint Cup races.
Keselowski is coming off consecutive victories at Richmond and the Chase for the Sprint Cup opener last week at Chicagoland. He swept the Cup and Nationwide races at New Hampshire in July.
SINGAPORE (AP) -- Lewis Hamilton took the lead in the Formula One drivers' championship by winning the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday, leapfrogging teammate Nico Rosberg who had to retire early with a mechanical failure.
Hamilton led comfortably but was forced into a late pit-stop. He briefly surrendered the race lead to Red Bull's Sebastian Vettel, before he passed the German seven laps from the finish to win by 13.5 seconds at the Marina Bay circuit.
The Briton won his seventh race of the season, and second in a row, to move to 241 points, ahead of Rosberg on 238 with five races left.
