Associated Press Poll: B1G makes return to Top 25 this week
Significant changes have hit the Associated Press Top 25 this week. Not only is the B1G back, but teams from three other conferences — the Pac-12, Mountain West and MAC — were also considered for the latest rankings.
Not only are we seeing teams from all 10 FBS leagues regain eligibility for the AP rankings again, but five teams that were listed in last week’s poll lost — including two top 10 upsets.
Kansas State defeated No. 3 Oklahoma 38-35 and Mississippi State knocked off No. 6 LSU. Three other ranked teams also fell this weekend — No. 22 Army (lost to No. 14 Cincinnati), No. 24 Louisville (lost to No. 21 Pitt) and No. 23 Kentucky (lost to No. 8 Auburn).
So, yes, this week’s Top 25 looks a bit different.
Here’s a look at the latest Associated Press Poll, which now includes teams from all 10 FBS conferences:
- Notre Dame
- Ohio State
- Penn State
- North Carolina
- Texas A&M
- Mississippi State
- Oklahoma State
