Sports Illustrated Releases Updated Top 25

Here is SI's updated ranking.

Week 1 of the college football season officially closes tonight, but Sports Illustrated has already released its updated top 25.

The biggest differences between this version and the one SI released preseason? Florida State is out of the top five, while Oklahoma State jumps in. Also, Penn State and USC have switched spots, with the Nittany Lions at No. 3 and the Trojans at No. 5.

Here is the full list:

  1. Alabama
  2. Ohio State
  3. Penn State
  4. Oklahoma State
  5. USC
  6. Oklahoma
  7. Washington
  8. Florida State
  9. Clemson
  10. Michigan
  11. LSU
  12. Auburn
  13. Wisconsin
  14. Georgia
  15. Stanford
  16. Louisville
  17. Kansas State
  18. Miami
  19. Virginia Tech
  20. UCLA
  21. Washington State
  22. USF
  23. Utah
  24. Boise State
  25. Florida

You can see the reasoning for each team's slotting here.

With so many high-profile matchups on the schedule for next weekend, this list will look a lot differently after Week 2.
