AP Poll Features Many Changes After Wild Week 5

The AP poll shows rankings 2 through 4 for week 6.

Saturday's action, which featured losses by four of the top eight teams in last week's AP Poll, turned the college football world on its head. Ole Miss, which sat at No. 3 following a big win in Tuscaloosa two weeks ago, lost in The Swamp to Florida, while Notre Dame, UCLA, and Georgia all fell. As expected, Clemson and Alabama, who beat the Fighting Irish and Bulldogs respectively, are among the biggest climbers at the top of this week's Top 25.

Undefeated Ohio State remains atop the poll after a very close win against Indiana in Bloomington, but a number of teams are gaining some serious momentum this season.

Here is the full AP Top 25:

1. Ohio State
2. TCU
3. Baylor
4. Michigan State
5. Utah
6. Clemson
7. LSU
8. Alabama
9. Texas A&M
10. Oklahoma
