It wasn’t until a little over a month after college football’s chaotic results impressed the top of the Granthshala Sports AFCA Coach Poll—until now.
Georgia lifts No. 1 ranking thanks to another convincing win at Auburn Texas A&M. Loss in Alabama. The Bulldogs, who held the No. 2 spot throughout the regular season, hold the top spot for the first time since a 2008 pre-season poll.
It is not unanimous for the Bulldogs, however, as second-place Iowa picked up one of 65 first-place votes. It is now the hockey’s highest ranking since USA Today began conducting the election in 1991. Rally to beat so-no. 4 Penn State.
Oklahoma also survived a wild contest against Red River rival Texas, climbing to No. Cincinnati moved to No. 4 after taking over Temple on Friday night. Alabama holds onto No. 5 and still controls its way to the SEC championship game.

The next four places belong to the Big Ten, which now account for half of the top 10. Ohio State is back at No. 6, followed by Michigan. Penn State has slipped just four places to number 8, followed by unbeaten Michigan State. Oregon is back at No. 10 after the open date as Brigham Young dropped from 10 places to No. 20 after a home loss to unranked Boise State.
Texas A&M rejoined the vote at No. 18 on the heels of Alabama’s victory. Also in this week’s top 25 is the new San Diego state, entering at No. 24.
Auburn and Texas are the dropouts this week.
