College Football Rankings 2018: Week 2 AP Top 25 Poll Released

-

The Associated Press has dropped its rankings in the AP Top 25 poll for Week 2 of the college football season. Entering the season, the Alabama Crimson Tide, Clemson Tigers, and Georgia Bulldogs held the top three spots in the nation. All of those teams delivered on opening weekend, while two top ten teams — the Washington Huskies and Miami Hurricanes — faltered to Auburn and LSU, respectively.

Penn State, which entered the year at No. 10, struggled to hold off Appalachian State in their opener but managed to hold off the Mountaineers in overtime.

Michigan, Florida State, and Texas were among the other top 25 teams to suffer defeat in their season-openers.

The Associated Press rankings carry more weight than polls like the Coaches Poll and FWAA Poll, as they are part of the deciding factor on which teams reach the College Football Playoff. The Coaches Poll, which is not part of the College Football Playoff selection committee’s formula to determine the four teams that will compete for the College Football Playoff National Championship, is voted on by 65 FBS head coaches.

Longtime college football writers who vote in the Associated Press Top 25 Poll include Ben Jones, Bill Landis, Brett McMurphy, Brian Howell, Rece Davis, Rob Long, Robert Gagliardi, Steve Layman, Steve Virgen, Tom Murphy, and Tony Parks.
