Alabama Remains No. 1, Penn State Climbs to No. 3 in Latest AP Top 25
With Oklahoma and Michigan losing in week six, the AP poll saw some change in the top 10.
Alabama, which received 43 of the 61 first-place votes, stayed at the top with Clemson remaining number two. Penn State, Georgia, and Washington all moved up a spot to round out the top five. Auburn also jumped into the top 10 after a win over Ole Miss.
The Sooners and Wolverines both dropped ten spots in the poll and will have a tough time climbing back up to the top four without a lot of help.
