College Football Polls: AP Updated Top 25, Coaches Poll Rankings After Week 1

The first full week of the college football season is in the books, with the SEC and Big Ten occupying the top four spots. Although Georgia made a convincing case against No. 11 Oregon to overtake Alabama for the No. 1 spot, the committee generally took it as a condemnation of Oregon rather than a vindication of Georgia, and it knocked the Ducks out of the Top 25. while the Bulldogs overtook Ohio State at No. #2

Ohio State’s win over Notre Dame earned it two No. 1 votes, but the Buckeyes’ ugly win over the Irish didn’t seem to draw much attention. Notre Dame, meanwhile, joins Utah as the only two 0-1 teams in the Top 25 (Utah, of course, lost to Florida in Week 1).

Florida’s victory over Utah catapulted it up the rankings to 12th, while Utah fell to 13th. Oklahoma State moved up one spot to 11th after a fight against Central Michigan.

All that said, there are still too many unanswered questions to guess too much from these rankings. Alabama vs. Texas should give us a better litmus test of their position, and we’ll see three Top 25 matchups in Week 3: No. 9 Baylor vs. No. 21 BYU; No. 12 Florida against No. 20 Kentucky; and No. 17 Pitt against No. 24 Tennessee.
