No. 5 Cincinnati beat Notre Dame 24-13 on the road and has its best ranking since Brian Kelly’s 2009 Bearcats were No. 4, and the team flaunted it on social media.
Despite the win, Clemson’s 19-13 victory over previously unbeaten Boston College couldn’t keep the Tigers in the Top 25. The AP reports it ends the team’s streak of 107 consecutive weeks in the rankings — the last time the Tigers were unranked was the week of Oct. 5, 2014.
No. 16 Kentucky earned its first ranking of the season after beating a then-No. 10 Florida. The Gators are now ranked No. 20. Also making first appearances in the poll in Week 6 include No. 21 Texas, No. 22 Arizona State, No. 24 SMU, and No. 25 San Diego State.
Texas A&M dropped out after losing two in a row. Also out this week include UCLA, Baylor, Fresno State and of course, Clemson.
