AP Top 25: Top seven teams unchanged after Week 3

·2-min read

The top seven teams in the AP Top 25 didn’t budge after Week 3.

Georgia is still the top team in the poll and is followed by Alabama, Ohio State, Michigan and Clemson. All five teams had blowout wins in Week 3.

Oklahoma is still at No. 6 after dominating Nebraska and USC stayed at No. 7 after beating Fresno State by 28. The first change came at No. 8, where Kentucky moved up a spot and swapped spots with Oklahoma State. The move is a tad confusing as both teams convincingly beat FCS opponents.

Arkansas stayed at No. 10 after struggling with its FCS opponent. The Hogs beat Missouri State 38-27 after trailing at the start of the fourth quarter to the team coached by former Razorbacks coach Bobby Petrino.
