It was a weekend full of changes to the AP Poll as two unranked teams upset Top-25 opponents, and there were four matchups of ranked teams.

Amid the chaos of teams on the field, those who haven’t set foot on the field, like the Big Ten, benefitted. For the second straight week, the Michigan Wolverines move up in the rankings ever so slightly from No. 20 to No. 19.

Ohio State (No. 6), Penn State (No. 9), and Wisconsin (No. 16) all maintained their rankings from last week as Minnesota moved up one spot to No. 24.

The SEC leads the way with six ranked teams even after LSU fell out of the Top-25 following a loss to unranked Missouri. The Big Ten and ACC each have five teams in the AP Poll, but the ACC boasts three of the top-5 teams: Clemson (No. 1), Notre Dame (No. 4), and North Carolina (No. 5).

There are two newcomers in the rankings as Kansas State started their season 3-1 after losing to Arkansas State in Week 1, they upset No. 3 Oklahoma and are on a three-game winning streak. USC comes in at No. 25 as one of two PAC-12 teams (Oregon at No. 12) in the Top-25.

Texas A&M made the largest jump from No. 21 to No. 11 following their upset over formerly Top-4 team, Florida, now at No. 10. LSU made the biggest drop going from No. 17 to unranked.

The only other team to fall out of the AP Poll is Texas as they fell in the Red River Rivalry to Oklahoma in quadruple-overtime for their second-straight loss.
