AP Top 25 poll: Georgia, TCU way up after impressing voters with big wins
The Bulldogs jumped up to No. 7 after an emphatic win over Mississippi State
It was more of a victory lap than a competitive football game Saturday night between the hedges as Georgia stopped upstart Mississippi State 31-3 in front of a raucous Sanford Stadium crowd. As a result, coach Kirby Smart's crew jumped four spots all the way up to No. 7 in the latest edition of the AP Top 25.
TCU also made waves in the latest poll, moving into the top 10 at No. nine following its 44-31 win over Oklahoma State. Florida State dropped from No. 12 to totally out of the latest edition of the poll, after it fell to 0-2 following a home loss to NC State. Oregon fell from its No. 24 spot after losing to Arizona State.
Also of note: Florida State finds itself out of the AP Top 25 for the first time since 2011.
Here's a look at the entire AP Top 25 heading into Week 5:
- Alabama (first-place votes -- 52)
- Clemson (8)
