The AP Top 25 is out with a new poll ahead following Rivalry Week action, which served as the conclusion to the 2023 regular season. Media members have weighed in on where the teams stand heading into an exciting weekend of conference championship games.

The College Football Playoff selection committee’s rankings will decide the final 4 and the New Year’s Six bowl games. AP voters, though, remain part of college football’s larger conversation of where teams deserve to be ranked as the AP Top 25 is the poll of record for most of the season.

Georgia became the consensus No. 1 (CFP, AP, Coaches) in Week 12. The Bulldogs held onto the top spot in the AP Top 25 after picking up a rivalry win at Georgia Tech. UGA heads into the SEC Championship Game 12-0 as it seeks to lock up a Playoff bid with a win over No. 8 Alabama.

All eyes were on the top-5 showdown between Ohio State and Michigan in Week 13. Michigan moved up from No. 3 to No. 2 by handing OSU its first loss of the season in The Game. The Buckeyes fell from No. 2 to No. 6. Fans will be watching on Tuesday to see if the committee does the same.

Michigan is 12-0 entering the Big Ten Championship Game, looking to win a conference title and punch its CFP ticket for the 3rd consecutive season. The Wolverines will face No. 18 Iowa.
