The Ohio State Buckeyes and the Oregon Ducks both moved up as the Oklahoma Sooners moved down, as the AP Top 25 was released on Sunday after Week 11 of the FBS season.
The Sooners’ 27-14 loss to Baylor impacted the high end of the poll, as the Sooners fell from No. 4 to No. 12. That opened up space for the Buckeyes and the Ducks to move up, and that’s what the pollsters did. Oregon moved up to No. 4 while Ohio State moved up to No. 5.
Georgia remained at No. 1 in the poll and are headed for the SEC Championship Game. Cincinnati, which was No. 2 by a hair last week, fell to No. 3, while Alabama moved up to No. 2, even though both teams won their games.
The rest of the Top 10 included No. 6 Notre Dame, No. 7 Michigan State, No. 8 Michigan, No. 9 Oklahoma State and No. 10 Ole Miss.
The rest of the AP Top 25 included No. 11 Baylor, No. 12 Oklahoma, No. 13 Wake Forest, No. 14 BYU, No. 15 UTSA, No. 16 Texas A&M, No. 17 Houston, No. 18 Iowa, No. 19 Wisconsin, No. 20 Pitt, No. 21 Arkansas, No. 22 Louisiana, No. 23 San Diego State, No. 24 Utah and No. 25 North Carolina State.
