AP College Football Poll 2016: Updated Week 2 Rankings

After the opening weekend of the college football regular season, the AP Top 25 Poll featured some major changes on Tuesday.

The AP preseason poll is always going to look a lot different by the end of the college football season. However, the previous poll already looks like it was from a completely different year after all of the upsets this past weekend.

The latest AP Top 25 Poll for Week 2 was released later than usual on Tuesday after big games on Sunday and Monday night. While the Alabama Crimson Tide still hold the No. 1 spot, the rest of the poll looks considerably different.

Tuesday’s latest poll featured a number of teams climbing and falling. The LSU Tigers dropped all the way from No. 5 in the nation down to No. 21 after a rough loss to the then-unranked Wisconsin Badgers at Lambeau Field. Oklahoma also fell from No. 3 to No. 14 after losing to the Houston Cougars.

As for the winners of this week’s AP Poll, the Cougars climbed from No. 15 to No. 6 after that upset win over the Sooners. Meanwhile the Washington Huskies climbed from No. 14 to No. 8 while the Georgia Bulldogs moved up nine spots to No. 9 behind the legs of Nick Chubb.
