AP Top 25 College Football Rankings – Week 2

Following a wild opening weekend, the Associated Press has released its latest AP Top 25 college football rankings as we prepare to enter Week 2. Following suit with the rest of the polls released on Tuesday, the defending national champion Alabama Crimson Tide were once again the clear No. 1, receiving 54 first-place votes.

One of the biggest winners of opening weekend was the Houston Cougars, who leaped from No. 15 to No. 6 after defeating the previously No. 3-ranked Oklahoma Sooners, who fell to No. 14.

It is Houston’s highest ranking since 1990, when they were the No. 3 team in the nation.

Florida State, Ohio State and Michigan all took advantage of losses in the top five — LSU and Oklahoma — to move up two spots a piece.

The biggest winners, however, were Wisconsin and Texas. The two previously unranked teams leaped to No. 10 and No. 11, respectively, after major upset victories in Week 1. The victims of those upsets, LSU and Notre Dame, fell to No. 21 and No. 18.

Where does your favorite team stand after opening weekend?
