The AP Top 25 survey of college football has been completed and while the top is fairly similar, there will likely be more movement next week with the inclusion of Pac-12 and the great Clemson Notre Dame game. This is then done for each team in the rankings.
1 Clemson (7-0)
We already know Trevor Lawrence won’t take no for an answer. 4 Notre Dame next week, because she doesn’t have time to approve the necessary protocols after a positive result of the coronavirus test. That means all attention is back to the starting quarterback D.J. Uiagalaleigh, who on Saturday threw over 300 yards in his first start and beat Boston College. For the Tigers and the Fighting Irish the stakes will be extremely high because of the consequences for the qualification of university football. In addition to Lawrence’s absence, Clemens will probably also start lineman James Skalski, hoping for the return of Mike Jones Jr. and Tyler Davis. Their status is still in the air. – Andrea Adelson
Number 2 Alabama (6-0)
Not that Mississippi enjoys the protection of the world, but a life without Jaylen Waddle didn’t seem so bad for Alabama, as she spelled 41 points to the Bulldogs. It reminded us that with DeVonta Smith, John Metchie III and Naji Harris, there are still plenty of opportunities to work with quarterback Mac Jones. And now, after the 6-0 start, Crimson Tide will get a well-deserved week’s vacation before taking over LSU. The break will serve the defense well, as it seems to bring back LaBryan Ray, who is one of the most talented passing players in the team, but who recently missed a number of games due to an elbow injury. — Alex Scarborough
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. 3 Ohio State (2-0)
Ohio State took advantage of a perfect start to the game and a largely unstoppable attack to cruise against Penn State, which on paper is by far the toughest game of the Big Ten regular season. The strongest advancing opponent can be complacent: Can the Buckeyes maintain the level of intensity they should have if they are favored with more than three touchdowns in each of the other games, except perhaps in Indiana (November 21) and Michigan (December 12)? — Bill Connally

4 Notre Dame (6-0)
The Irish won a major victory over Georgia Tech and made it convincing. That was important because it keeps the team undefeated, but also because it gives you a certain amount of confidence when you go into the game against Clemson. The defense of Notre Dame has already started and Clemonson will again be without quarterback Trevor Lawrence. Notre Dame will need protection to have her best game if she wants to face the Tigers and perform well in the playoffs. — Tom VanHaren
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. 5 Georgia (4-1)
The Bulldogs will have to show Florida something better than Kentucky. Georgia only missed three points, but the defense in the race against Kentucky was questionable. In addition to Zamir White’s fast attack from 136 metres, the Georgian attack was again under heavy pressure. The Bulldogs need to do more if they want to win this battle for control of the SEC East. — Harry Liles, Jr.
Number 6 Cincinnati (5-0)
If quarterback Desmond Knight continues to play against SMU and Memphis, the Bear Cats will continue to provide a convincing argument for the university football play-offs. The defense also plays without light and Luke Fickell’s team is one of the hottest in the country as they face Houston 2-2 this weekend. — Harry Liles, Jr.
Number 7 Texas A&M (4-1)
It’s still rosy for Aggie. Now that they’ve sent Arkansas, the calendar looks ripe for a possible run at the school football play-offs. Only one of the five opponents in the final in Aggis (Auburn) currently has a winning record. If quarterback Kellen Mond plays as he is and the running game and defense remains difficult, Texas A&M will be in the mix. — Sam Khan Jr.
Number 8 Florida (3-1)
The Alligators may have stumbled against Missouri after a week without training and with players pushed to the sidelines by COVID 19 protocol, but they didn’t do it. Instead, Florida took care of business and went to the most important game of the season. On Saturday, against Georgia, SEC East is at stake and offers the opportunity to achieve university football qualifications. Although Florida has decided to go on the offensive, it remains to be seen whether the defense can handle the task. Keeping Missouri at 17 points was a good start, but the game for Georgia will bring another set of challenges. — Scarborough
9 BYU (7-0)
The Cougars did not finish the season and have been in 25th place in the PA rankings since 2009, when Bronco Mendenhall’s coaching staff finished in 12th place after 11-2 years. If there is no unexpected relapse in the coming weeks, this band should change. It seems rather to be the height the Panthers can reach, and this week’s game in the state of Boise offers BYU the best chance to prove to the country how good they are at dealing with a quality opponent. — Bonagura
10 Wisconsin (1-0)
The badgers are in a dangerous situation because they are forced to cancel the match against Nebraska because of the appearance of COWID-19. There are currently 22 positive cases in the program, including starting quarterback Graham Mertz and reserve quarterback Chase Wolf, both scheduled to sit 21 days. Due to the number of cases Wisconsin will not be allowed to play his next match against Purdue either. That decision will be taken on Tuesday, but the fact that Mertz and Wolf are away for three weeks may ultimately be a big factor in what happens in their games. — Tom VanHaren
11 Miami (5-1)
The Hurricanes had an open date for playing NC State Friday night. Among the main areas where they need to improve are the offensive line and running game, which has taken a step back in recent games. Miami handled the ball well in the first month of the season before recently hitting a play-off. Eriq King’s quarterback was also limited in his effectiveness on the field, so it’s important to get there, especially on the road against the team, which makes 182 rushing meters per game possible. — Adelson
Number 12 Oregon (0-0)
The wait is almost over. As the top team in the Pac-12, Oregon has the best chance to qualify for the playoffs. Probably? Probably not. Is it possible? We can’t rule out ducks yet. A loss to Oklahoma means the Big 12 don’t have an undefeated team. So, if the Pac-12 champion ends undefeated, it should be left in favor of the Power 5 team with a defeat or the invincible team in Group 5. — Bonagura
13 Indiana (2-0)
The Hoosiers got off to a perfect start and beat the Penn State team and passed Rutgers unharmed. The next Michigan is on track, and the Wolverines are fighting now, mainly in defense. Indiana quarterback Michael Penix Jr. missed 408 yards and scored four touchdowns this season. The team will need his hand to get past Michigan and try to stay undefeated when Indiana is on the 21st. November in Ohio State. It’s a short season, but Indiana has finally recovered and won some of the close games they lost in the past. — Tom VanHaren
14 Oklahoma (4-1)
So it’s unlikely that the Cowboys will lose the trip back to Texas after the Cowboys, but the Big 12 championship is still going on. The Pokes may have fought back for making so many mistakes (four spins and a fourth penalty), but they are still a good team with a very good defense and explosive offensive talent. — Sam Khan Jr.
15 Coast Carolina (6-0)
What do Chanticleers have to do after a record victory over the Georgian state? Go on, of course. Coast Carolina, one of the best stories in college football, will look to build on their incredible season against southern Alabama on Saturday. Although the return of quarterback Grayson McCall was pleasing, the Black Swarm defense continued its excellent play, holding Georgia just 106 yards. The improvement in defense compared to the two previous leagues was impressive. — Adelson
16 Marshall (5-0)
The Thundering Herd had a day off after the cancellation of the game against Florida International, and this weekend they’re playing against Umass. If one team comes out of the farewell week for a little warm-up, it’s the Minutemans. — Liles Jr.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. 17 State of Iowa (4-2)
Brace Hall joined Heisman’s call, leading FBS in the Stage Race (134), the Running Race (901) and the Rush TD (11) and was the first of the Big 12 since Adrian Peterson opened in Oklahoma in 2006 with six live 100-yard games. The second will be pleased that Baylor, in addition to being on schedule, allowed 247 yards with 5.6 for the transfer against TCU on Saturday. Can Hall, after he left on the 24th of this week. October with 185 meters, the highlight of his career, now for the third week in a row reach this point? — Khan
18 EMS (6-1)
The Mustangs still have some tough matches ahead of them, but they are still very popular to take a spot in the AAC title game. The SMU will travel to Tulsa – one of the two teams currently in position at one of these locations – to give the ponies a chance to get back in position. If Shane Buchele and the race can play as well as Saturday against the Navy, the Sonny Dykes team will be in top form. — …Han Junior.
No. 19 Oklahoma (4-2)
The Sooners’ 62-28 victory over Texas Tech has never been competitive and next week’s game in Norman could be even less so with the arrival of the small town of Kansas. With a 3-2 result, Oklahoma is behind the two teams they lost in the Big 12, Iowa and Kansas, and behind the state of Oklahoma, which they hosted on March 21. This will be the case in November. The hopes of the short qualifiers died a few weeks ago, but will they find a way to win their title in the sixth consecutive conference? — Bonagura
Number 20 Southern California (0-0)
Led by Clay Helton, USC had a notoriously slow start, which is not exactly true for the six-lap regular season. And this weekend’s season opener against the state of Arizona took an extra and unusual turn, with the start at 9 a.m. local time. Pac-12 After Dawn opens the conference to a potential new audience and allows USC to make a positive first impression. — Bonagura
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. 21 Boise State (2-0)
If the State of Boise wants to remain in the position to represent Group 5 in New Year’s Bowl 6, this week’s tipping pitch against the BYU is a must. This is only the third time. Game for the Broncos and the 8. The game for the BYU to be – a strange, not for 2020, a fantastic mood of planning – and it is not clear what the status of the rookie quarterback Broncos Hank Bachmayer will be. Even if Bahmayer isn’t available because he was in the Air Force on Saturday, Boise seems to be in good hands with Southern California to free Jack Sears. — Bonagura
22 Texas (4-2)
In one of those races on Saturday, Tom Herman and the Longhorns found a way to do that by winning overtime 41-34 in a race against Oklahoma. The Texas defense wasn’t good throughout the season, but the Longhorns made four laps and Joseph Ossay gave up with a bag of Oklahoma quarterback Spencer Sanders in overtime to give Texas a new life in the Big 12 races. — Chris Lowe
23 Michigan (1-1)
Michigan’s defeat now puts the season in a very different situation from the one they experienced after their first week of victory over Minnesota. Michigan, second ranked, fought the Spartans, his line of defense had no pockets and D was not corrupt. With games against Indiana, Penn, Wisconsin and Ohio, the season long search for the Wolverines as Michigan’s defense, especially in high school, does not improve. — Tom VanHaren
24 Auburn (4-2)
The sophomore Knicks’ quarterback put it all together for Auburn, who prolonged the suffering of the national LSU champion on Saturday. The Knicks walked 300 yards and crashed 81 more times when Auburn jumped 42-3 to win the plains 48-11. LSU has won four of the last five games in the series, but it was never a close game. Auburn now has a week’s vacation, and despite a few breakouts and random calls this season, he remains in the race for the SEC. — Low
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. 25 Freedom (6-0)
Hugh Freeze’s teams have always been known for their high scoring attacks, and the fire that was put out this week averages 38 points per match, making them 18th in the national standings. Quarterback Malik Willis, a transfer from Auburn, has flourished in Freeze. A week ago, he scored seven touchdowns, defeated Miss of the South Liberty, led the Fire in pairs and took three of the season’s six victories. Their biggest game of the season – and one of the biggest in the history of the school – awaits them this weekend when they travel to Virginia Tech. — Low
