ESPN college football power rankings.

ESPN Power Rankings Week 2, 2015

ESPN released its latest college football power rankings on Tuesday, and there was quite a bit of movement. Most notably, Notre Dame jumped eight spots after defeating Texas at home in South Bend, 38-3, and now sits No. 4 on the list. But the Irish weren't the only ones playing ESPN's version of 'Chutes and Ladders.'

Along with Notre Dame, Texas A&M also made a massive jump - 14 spots - after defeating No. 15 Arizona State in Houston last weekend, 38-17, moving from No. 25 to No. 11 in the power rankings. But as fast as ND and A&M climbed ladders, others found chutes. After easily handling opening weekend opponents, No. 7 Auburn dropped four spots, No. 12 Florida State dropped three and No. 13 Georgia also dropped three.
