Clemson loses to Syracuse by 3 pts, only drops 5 spots in the AP poll. Syracuse still has 0 votes in the AP poll.
Washington loses to Arizona State by 6 pts, only drops 7 spots. Arizona State still has 0 votes.
Washington State loses to Cal by 34 pts, only drops 7 spots. Cal still has 0 votes.
Auburn loses to LSU by 4 pts, drops 11 spots. LSU is now ranked 24th.
Explain to me how Auburn drops the furthest by losing to the better team.
