AP Top 25: call me when something interesting happens

New, 5 comments

Many upset alerts resulted in...almost nothing

NCAA Football: Washington at Colorado Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

Week 4 is in the books, and in some moments it seemed that something important was set to happen, as Clemson, USC, and Michigan were having problems against, respectively, Boston College, Cal, and Purdue. Later in the night, also the Nittany Lions had troubles with Iowa, but they survived.

Consequently, the AP poll top 5 remained unchanged, with Alabama, Clemson, Oklahoma, Penn State, and USC leading the group.

Oklahoma State lost to TCU and dropped from No. 6 to No. 15, while with this victory the Horned Frogs jumped to No. 7. A fourth Big 12 team reached again the top 25, as West Virginia came back at No. 23.

The important win over Houston decuplicated Texas Tech votes, from 4 to 40, but this wasn’t enough to reach the ranking for the first time since 2013. The Red Raiders are at the moment in a virtual 28th position.
