Week 12 of the college football season is in the books. Next up is Rivalry Week as we close out the 2018 regular season.

CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd has updated his weekly top 25 power rankings. He has a pretty big surprise at No.5.

Dodd has Washington State ranked fifth, ahead of Georgia and Oklahoma. That's certainly an atypical ranking for the Cougars.

Here is Dodd’s new top 25:

  1. Alabama
  2. Clemson
  3. Notre Dame
  4. Michigan
  5. Washington State
  6. Georgia
  7. Oklahoma
  8. UCF
  9. LSU
  10. Utah State
  11. Ohio State
  12. West Virginia
  13. Texas
  14. Florida
  15. Washington
  16. Utah
  17. Kentucky
  18. Boise State
  19. Fresno State
  20. Syracuse
  21. Cincinnati
  22. Pitt
  23. Northwestern
  24. Appalachian State
  25. Army

As you can see, Dodd’s personal rankings are a little different than the AP and Coaches polls.
