Auburn 10th in AP poll, 11th in coaches' poll

Auburn continued its upward mobility in the polls, moving up seven spots in the Associated Press poll to No. 10 and three spots in the USA Today coaches' poll to No. 11.

Auburn, which beat South Carolina 35-27 Saturday, is the third highest-ranked SEC team in the AP poll, behind No. 1 Alabama and No. 7 Florida.

The Tigers haven't been ranked in the AP top-10 since the Sept. 14 poll of 2008, when they were 3-0 and the No. 10 team in the country.

They are the fourth-highest SEC team in the coaches' poll, behind No. 1 Alabama, No. 7 Florida and No. 10 LSU.

South Carolina dropped 12th to 19th in the AP poll and 15th to 22nd in the coaches' poll.

Auburn leapfrogged a number of teams in the AP poll, jumping Arkansas, Arizona, Utah, LSU and Wisconsin. Of those teams, only the Razorbacks lost.

The Tigers moved past Utah, Arkansas and Texas in the coaches' poll.
