AP Top 25 poll: Texas leaps Florida State, Oregon joins top 10, Florida enters new college football rankings


Texas jumped to No. 3 in the AP Top 25 on Sunday, despite a closer-than-expected 31-10 win over Wyoming. The Longhorns scored 21 unanswered in the fourth quarter to pull away. It is the program’s highest ranking since its berth in the 2010 BCS National Championship, Florida State slid one spot to No. 4 after narrowly surviving an upset bid from Boston College. Georgia and Michigan held strong at No. 1 and 2. 

After beating Hawaii 55-10, Oregon moved into the top 10 for the first time this season and jumped Utah in the process. Tennessee slid 12 spots down the board after losing 29-16 to Florida, while the Gators entered the rankings at No. 25. Colorado also fell one spot after needing double-overtime to survive a challenge from rival Colorado State in a 43-35 victory. 

Outside of Texas and FSU, the rest of the top 9 remained unchanged. USC rounded out the top five, while Ohio State ranked just five points behind at No. 6. Penn State, Washington and Notre Dame led Oregon to finish the top 10. Florida was the only new addition to the poll after Kansas State dropped out for losing on a 61-yard field goal to Missouri.
