It isn't an exaggeration to call this past Saturday one of the single craziest college football Saturday's in recent memory, with No. 1 Alabama falling as a three-score favorite, Oklahoma and Texas playing an iconic Red River Shootout, Penn State-Iowa and more.


With Week 6 now in the books, we have an updated AP Top 25 - here it is.


  1. Georgia

  2. Iowa

  3. Cincinnati

  4. Oklahoma

  5. Alabama

  6. Ohio State

  7. Penn State

  8. Michigan

  9. Oregon

  10. Michigan State

  11. Kentucky

  12. Oklahoma State

  13. Ole Miss

  14. Notre Dame

  15. Coastal Carolina

  16. Wake Forest

  17. Arkansas

  18. Arizona State

  19. BYU

  20. Florida

  21. Texas A&M

  22. NC State

  23. SMU

  24. San Diego State

  25. Texas


The big news is of course at the top, where Georgia has overtaken Alabama as the top team in college football. And with good reason, as a historic defense and elite run game have led them to six straight convincing wins to start the season. In an interesting twist, they now get set to host the only other undefeated team in the SEC, Kentucky, which is ranked No. 11.


By the way, when was the last time you think a 6-0 SEC team, that was 4-0 in league play was ranked outside the Top 10? Guessing its been a while.


Yet while we do have one new Top 10 team (hello, Michigan State) the more interesting thing may be who fell after Saturday's losses. Alabama finds itself at No. 5 following their loss to Texas A&M, while Penn State is now No. 7 after losing at Iowa


(How Penn State is ranked behind Alabama, when they lost to a Top 5 team, in a game where they lost their quarterback is beyond us).


Interestingly, there is only one new team in the Top 25 this week: A&M, coming off their incredible win over Alabama.


They replace Auburn, who fell from the Top 25
