AP Top 25 Poll: Utah, Oregon and Georgia Move Up In The Polls

There was not a lot of change in the polls this week with a number of teams ⁠— including four of the top 5 teams ⁠— having bye weeks which left Georgia, Florida, Oregon and Utah as the only Top 10 teams in action.

The eighth ranked Bulldogs knocked off the sixth ranked Gators, while No. 7 Oregon and No. 9 Utah kept their playoff hopes alive with big road wins over USC and Washington.

In fact, the weekend could not have went better for the Pac-12 as Oregon (8-1) and Utah (8-1) remain on a collision course for the Pac-12 championship game. If both can win out, there’s a good chance that the Pac-12 will have a representative in the College Football Playoff this year after missing out the past two seasons. The playoff rankings will be unveiled Tuesday night. Since the selection committee started ranking teams in the new system, it has never matched the AP’s top 4 teams. So expect some fireworks on Tuesday.

With the win, Utah has now won five consecutive Pac-12 games for the first time in program history and head into next week with a timely bye before the final stretch of the regular season with games against UCLA, Arizona and Colorado.

Navy moved into the Top 25 to give the American Athletic Conference four ranked teams ⁠—the third most from any conference outside of the Big Ten and SEC. Memphis jumped up five spots to No. 19 after beating previously undefeated and 15th ranked SMU, 54-48.
