Red River Rivalry win sends OU into Top 5, Mizzou falls out of Top 25 AP poll

In the latest Associated Press college football poll, Oklahoma climbed to the No. 5 spot following their victory against Texas. Meanwhile, Georgia, after an impressive win against Kentucky, regained some first-place votes and held onto the No. 1 position. Michigan, Ohio State, and Florida State also received first-place votes, securing spots in the top four.

The traditional basketball powerhouses are making a mark on the football field this season. For the first time in the history of the AP football poll, six renowned basketball schools—Kentucky, North Carolina, Duke, Kansas, UCLA, and Louisville—are simultaneously ranked. Louisville achieved its highest ranking since 2017 after defeating Notre Dame.

Georgia’s dominance continues, as their 17-week streak at No. 1 is now tied for the fourth-most of all time. The Bulldogs face upcoming challenges against Vanderbilt and Florida, followed by matchups against Missouri, Mississippi, and Tennessee in November.

Seven unbeaten teams suffered losses over the weekend, with Fresno State and Missouri dropping out of the Top 25. UCLA rose to No. 18 after defeating Washington State, while Kansas re-entered the rankings at No. 23 after a convincing victory against UCF.
