The Southeastern Conference (SEC) set an NCAA record with eight of its teams in this week's Associated Press Top 25 poll.

The Southeastern Conference (SEC) set an NCAA record with eight of its teams made the Associated Press Top 25 poll this week. 

According to Ralph D. Russo of the Associated Press, this development stems from a massive shakeup after seven ranked teams lost over the weekend. Five lower-ranked or unranked teams pullled off several upsets, including the Utah Utes' 27-20 win over the Stanford Cardinal and the Penn State Nittany Lions' 43-40, four-overtime victory over the Michigan Wolverines. 

Stanford dropped to No. 13 while Michigan is no longer in the AP Top 25. 

While the Alabama Crimson Tide, Oregon Ducks, Clemson Tigers and Ohio State Buckeyes retained their respective slots in the top 4, the Florida State Seminoles, behind freshman quarterback sensation Jameis Winston, went up to No. 5.

The other SEC teams joining Alabama in the AP Top 25 are the No. 6 LSU Tigers, No. 7 Texas A&M Aggies, No. 11 South Carolina Gamecocks, No. 14 Missouri Tigers, No. 15 Georgia Bulldogs, No. 22 Florida Gators and No. 24 Auburn Tigers.

The Auburn Tigers cracked the Top 25 for the first time in the 2013 season. The Missouri Tigers are the biggest climbers among the SEC teams, moving up 11 spots after their emphatic 41-26 victory over Georgia.

The previous record of seven schools representing one conference in the AP Top 25 were set several times before, notably by the SEC, ACC and Big Ten, per ESPN.
