Plenty of movement in updated AP/Coaches Poll CFB rankings

Kentucky was kicked out of the top-25 last week, but there was still plenty of notable movement in the updated Week 6 rankings.

The top-6 teams remained mostly the same, but the rest of the top-25 was a complete mess from top to bottom. UCF (previously ranked No. 11) Mississippi State (No. 16), and Oklahoma (No. 18) were all knocked out of the top-25 following bad losses on Saturday while another “top-tier” program, Texas (previously ranked No. 9), saw a 13-spot drop after falling to TCU.

Five unranked teams–SMU, Virginia Tech, Lousiana, Iowa State, and Minnesota–all made the leap into the top-25 on Sunday. Several other programs, including inter-conference rival Tennessee, saw huge bumps in their rankings. The Volunteers jumped from No. 21 to No. 14 while schools such as North Carolina (No. 12 to No. 8), Oklahoma State (No. 17 to No. 10), BYU (No. 22 to No. 15) all shot way up in the AP Poll. Despite losing to Alabama and Georgia, respectively, Auburn and Texas A&M both took sizable hits in their rankings, too. The Tigers went from No. 7 to No. 13 while the Aggies dropped from No. 13 to No. 21.

This is your friendly reminder that Big Ten teams have yet to play a game (yet somehow Minnesota moved UP in the rankings).

As for the top-6 teams, the AP Poll listed them in order as: Clemson, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Notre Dame, and Ohio State. Florida and Georgia swapped spots from last week. Seven SEC schools make up the top-25.
