The Big Ten has four teams in the top 10 of The Associated Press college football poll during the regular season for the first time since 1960, and No. 24 Western Michigan is ranked for the first time in school history.No. 8 Wisconsin and No. 10 Nebraska joined No. 2 Ohio State and No. 4 Michigan in the first 10 of the AP Top 25 released Monday. The poll release was delayed one day because two FBS games were postponed until Sunday due to Hurricane Matthew.Alabama remains No. 1. The Crimson Tide received 56 first-place votes. Ohio State and No. 3 Clemson each received two first-place votes. Michigan had one first-place vote.Washington was fifth as the top five went unchanged after all had decisive victories last weekend.---POLL POINTSThe Big Ten had four teams ranked in the top 10 in the preseason poll of 1999, but the last time it happened during the regular season was Oct. 3, 1960, with No. 3 Iowa, No. 4 Illinois, No. 5 Ohio State and No. 7 Purdue.INNo. 24 Western Michigan is 6-0 for the first time since 1941 and is in position to contend for a spot in a New Years Six bowl. The Broncos have already beaten two Big Ten teams (Northwestern and Illinois). This season has continued as a steady rise for the Broncos since coach P.J. Fleck, who at 35 is the second-youngest head coach in the FBS, took over in 2013 and went 1-11. WMU was 8-5 the past two seasons, reaching bowl games in consecutive seasons for the first time in school history.Of course it means something. I think it matters a lot, Fleck said Monday. Internally, we play it down a lot because where you are right now doesnt mean you have the right to be there tomorrow.What I do love it for is our community, Fleck said. This is a 109-year history of our program, weve never been ranked. This city of Kalamazoo is a special place. We have an incredible institution with an amazing student body. And incredible faculty and professors that deserve to have a top-25 football program. And now they have one. They can say they have one.- No. 23 Auburn is ranked for the first time this season.- No. 25 Navy is ranked after upsetting Houston 46-40 on Saturday.OUT- Stanford dropped out of the rankings for the first time since early in the 2015 season.- North Carolina is out again after losing at home to Virginia Tech 34-3.- After a two-week stay, Colorado dropped out after losing at USC.UP- No. 14 Florida State has been all over the rankings through the first six weeks of the regular season. After dropping to No. 23 last week, the Seminoles jumped nine spots after beating Miami.- No. 17 Virginia Tech moved up eight spots after beating North Carolina. The Hokies are ranked in consecutive weeks for the first time since 2013.DOWN- No. 13 Houston slipped seven spots after losing its first game of the season.- No. 16 Miami dropped six.- No. 22 Arkansas fell six spots after losing to Alabama.CONFERENCE CALLThe SEC regained sole possession of the top of the conference standings after being matched by the ACC last week.SEC -- 7ACC -- 5Big Ten -- 4Big 12 -- 3Pac-12 -- 2. The last time the Pac-12 had only two teams ranked was Sept. 6, 2011.American -- 2Mountain West -- 1MAC -- 1RANKED vs. RANKEDNo. 1 Alabama at No. 9 Tennessee. The fourth ranked opponent in four weeks for the Volunteers is the toughest yet.No. 2 Ohio State at No. 8 Wisconsin. First regular-season meeting since 2013.No. 12 Mississippi at No. 22 Arkansas. Losing to the Razorbacks in overtime last season, thanks in large part to a crazy lateral play, cost Ole Miss a chance to play for SEC title.---Follow Ralph D.

PAUL, Minn. Discount Curry Shoes . -- Quarterback Will Finch threw for 252 yards and three touchdowns, and Yannick Harou rushed in two scores as the No. SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- Rickie Fowler couldnt resist smiling Thursday when a reporter tried to artfully phrase a potentially prickly question about his midseason struggles this year.Hed just shot a 2-under 68 in the first round of the PGA Championship, so it was an odd time to talk about why he has been a hot mess in all the majors this season, but the reporter tap-danced around it anyway: Is it fair to say the middle part of your year wasnt quite what you wanted it to be?The middle part was terrible, Fowler said. You dont have to sugar coat it. It wasnt very good.It was a nice bit of candor from one of golfs typically reserved personalities, and it spoke to just how lost Fowler was for a stretch of 2016. After starting the year with four top-10s in his first five starts -- including a near miss at the Waste Management Phoenix Open -- he found himself mired in a tailspin in which he missed cuts at four of the most important tournaments: The Masters, The Players, The Memorial and The Open Championship.Missing cuts is definitely not fun, and definitely not whats planned, Fowler said. Swing wise, its just fundamentals. At the highest level, if you are off just a little bit, especially in a major, it picks you apart.Six years into Fowlers career, its still hard to project what kind of player hell go down as. An overhyped, streaky fan favorite? Hes likely better than that, especially after retooling his swing under Butch Harmon and finding more consistency. He has won three times since rebuilding his swing, including earlier this year in Abu Dhabi at the HSBC Championship.An all-time great? Might be a stretch, but its still possible. Hes only 27 years old, and Phil Mickelson didnt win his first major until he was 33. Five out of the past six major winners have been first-timers, which suggests he has karma on his side. When hes playing well, Fowler hits it so pure, its hard to imagine him never breaking through and winning a major. He doesnt have any glaring weaknesses. Hes currently sixth on the PGA Tour in strokes gained tee-to-green, 13th in total driving distance, and 48th in strokes gained putting.Butt in a way, playing so well in 2014, when he became only the third player in history (joining Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods) to finish in the top five in all four majors in one season, may have raised expectations to unrealistic levels.dddddddddddd Winning the Players in a playoff in 2015 only fueled the hype even more. Touted at the start of the year as a potential member of The Big Four, with Jason Day, Jordan Spieth and Rory McIlroy, Fowler now isnt even a lock to make the U.S. Ryder Cup team. Hes 10th in points, and might need Davis Love III to make him a captains pick without a strong showing over the final month of qualifying.All of which is why Fowlers first-round 68 at Baltusrol was a positive sign. In the opening round of the past seven majors, Fowler had been a combined 25-over par. And after starting with a bogey on the 10th hole, his first of the day, he then made four birdies on the back nine to finish the day 3 strokes behind Round 1 leader Jimmy Walker, who shot 65.Definitely happy with todays round, Fowler said. Anything in red numbers is always nice to start off a major. ... I like my chances. Ive been swinging well and heading in the right direction. Anything can happen this week.Fowlers youth, his embrace of social media, and his unique sense of style can create the impression (at least among some fans) that he doesnt care enough -- that he isnt as focused on winning tournaments the way Spieth, Day and McIlroy are.Its an unfair characterization, and Fowler put some of it to rest earlier this year when he choked up in his post-round media conference after losing in a playoff to Hideki Matsuyama in the Waste Management Phoenix Open. It was obvious, in both his words and how his voice broke several times, how badly he wanted to win in front of his father and grandfather, who were in attendance.With how good Im playing, I know I can win. Thats what hurts, Fowler said at the time.After a frustrating couple of months, Fowler may finally be back there again. ' ' '
