Week 5 of the college football regular season pretty much stuck to the plan. There were only a couple of mild upsets.
However, because Clemson barely escaped UNC and Alabama throttled Ole Miss, there is a new No. 1 in the AP Poll. The Crimson Tide have taken over the top spot.
Alabama also jumped over Clemson in the Coaches' Poll. Ohio State and LSU flipped spots in the AP rankings as well after the Buckeyes' blowout win over Nebraska.
Additionally, Notre Dame and Florida also switched places.
Here is the updated AP top 25 after Week 5:
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Penn State
- Boise State
- Arizona State
- Oklahoma State
- Wake Forest
- Texas A&M (tied at No. 25)
- Michigan State (tied at No. 25)
This week, we'll see Ohio State take on Michigan State, which is the top team "also receiving votes." Iowa plays Michigan, and Florida and Auburn meet in a battle of top 10 teams.
We should see some separation after next Saturday.
