FAYETTEVILLE — Arkansas' embarrassing loss to Louisiana-Monroe has cost the Razorbacks their spot in The Associated Press top 25 poll.
The Razorbacks, who were ranked No. 8 before the 34-31 overtime loss in Little Rock, tumbled out of this week's rankings. Arkansas' fall is the second-largest in the history of the poll, according to AP college football reporter Ralph Russo. It is second only to Michigan's drop from No. 5 to unranked after a loss to Appalachian State in 2007.
The tumble also snaps Arkansas' lengthy run in the AP poll. The Razorbacks had been ranked in 33 straight polls dating back to the 2010 AP preseason poll.
It was the seventh-longest active streak in the nation and the fifth-longest in school history.
Arkansas had been ranked in the top 10 in 12 straight polls, too, which was fourth-longest active streak in the country and fourth-longest in school history.
Arkansas plays No. 1 Alabama on Saturday in Razorback Stadium. The Crimson Tide remained No. 1 after a 35-0 win against Western Kentucky.
