College Football Top 25 Rankings: Alabama Jumps Florida State in AP Poll


With the final week of the college football regular season wrapped up for most conferences and conference championship games about to begin, the USA Today and AP Poll Top 25 rankings for college football that were released Sunday had quite a few surprises.

The original AP Top Three from the preseason is the same, but the teams have no been reordered.

Alabama finally jumped Florida State in the AP Poll to take the top spot in both polls after beating Auburn on Saturday. They are No. 1, Florida State is No. 2, and Oregon is No. 3. At No. 4 is TCU, at No. 5 is Baylor, and at No. 6 is Ohio State.

That’s the way the College Football Playoff would look if the AP and USA Today Polls had their say with a week to go, meaning Baylor and Ohio State would be on the outside.

What that shows is we’re still in a position of major uncertainty with only conference championship week left on the season.

The SEC leads the country with seven teams in the Top 25, the Pac-12 has five in the AP Poll and four in the USA Today Poll, the Big Ten has four in the AP Poll and five in the USA Today Poll, the ACC has four in both polls, the Big 12 has four in both polls, and then Boise State is ranked in both polls as the only non-Power Five team.

Clearly, the SEC dominance shows, but as last Saturday proved with the ACC vs. SEC East match-ups, the gap is narrowing.

Here is the Top 25 for both polls going into Conference Championship Weekend.
