AP Poll: Ohio State at No.6, SEC Down to 5 Ranked Teams?
Things have changed in the AP Poll concerning the SEC.
The recent AP Poll is out and the Ohio State Buckeyes remain at No. 6 following their hard fought win over Northwestern. Surprisingly the SEC only has five teams in the top 25 this week but three are ranked in the top 10.
The top six teams remained the same but Texas A&M moved into the NO. 7 spot. While other highly ranked teams were playing close games against conference foes, or getting upset by them, the Aggies showed their muscle by defeating New Mexico State 52-7.
Wisconsin moved to 9, Nebraska to 9 and Florida rounded out the top 10. Don’t sleep on the Gators, they are picking up steam.
Florida doesn’t have a dynamic offense but their defense may be the best in the nation. The Gators could very well be a threat to make the college football playoffs.
The Big Ten and ACC matched the SEC with five teams ranked this week. The PAC 12 and Big 12 each have four. The Mountain West and the Mid-American Conference have one team apiece in the Top 25.
Here are the rankings on the AP Poll going into week 10:

This is the last AP Poll before the College Football Playoff rankings come out this week. However, make no mistake about it, future polls will help shape the committee members decisions on the playoff rankings. So I will pay attention to them too.
