Top Two Stay Put in Polls

October 13, 2003|From Associated Press

Oklahoma and Miami strengthened their grips on the top two spots in the Associated Press college football poll following a weekend that featured losses by 10 ranked teams.

The Sooners, No. 1 since the preseason, received 61 of the 64 first-place votes Sunday after a 65-13 victory over Texas. The Hurricanes got the other three top votes after beating Florida State, 22-14.

Virginia Tech, the only other unbeaten team from a major conference, was No. 3, followed by Georgia and USC.

The USA Today/ESPN coaches poll had the same top three teams as AP.

Miami receiver Roscoe Parrish was in stable condition in a hospital at Tallahassee, Fla., one day after being hit hard in the chest by Florida State cornerback Stanford Samuels.

Parrish left in the second quarter and was taken to a hospital, where test results showed no internal bleeding, Coach Larry Coker said.

Timmy Chang's 353 yards passing in Hawaii's 55-28 victory over Fresno State on Saturday night at Honolulu helped him become the 25th Division I-A quarterback to pass for 10,000 yards in a career.

The junior, who had five touchdown passes, has 10,274 yards passing in his career and 1,659 this season.
