AP Top 25 College Football Breakdown

The latest AP Top 25 poll is out. Here are the rankings:

1. Clemson
2. Alabama
3. Ohio State
4. Notre Dame
5. Georgia
6. Cincinnati
7. Texas A&M
8. Florida
9. BYU
10. Wisconsin
11. Miami
12. Oregon
13. Indiana
14. Oklahoma State
15. Coastal Carolina
16. Marshall
17. Iowa State
18. SMU
19. Oklahoma
20. USC
21. Boise State
22. Texas
23. Michigan
24. Auburn
25. Liberty

Some quick notes:

1) The top five is unchanged from last week. Clemson-Notre Dame next week, with the Tigers playing without Trevor Lawrence, will be a good litmus test for the top five.

2) Oklahoma State, after getting upset by Texas at home, dropped from no. 6 to no. 14. Texas, as a result of the win, re-entered the top 25.

3) Cincinnati is going to start to be on the outskirts of College Football Playoff conversations if there continues to be turbulence in front of them.

4) Indiana, after taking care of Rutgers, jumped from no. 17 to no. 13.

5) How about Coastal Carolina and Marshall at no. 15 and no. 16, respectively.

6) This is finally the last week of no Pax-12. It’ll be nice to evaluate Oregon, USC, and others from the conference.

  1. What’s the obsession with Cincy ahead of A&M and Florida? Does anybody seriously think they’d ever be favored in a game against either one? They’re a fine program with a fine coach but being in the AAC puts a ceiling on how good you can be. It’s just a fact.
