College Football Poll Mash-up: Week 2


Both have Alabama at number one, but then it gets interesting. The AP has Oregon at #2 while Ohio State is #2 in the USA Today’s Coaches Poll. The coaches weren’t willing to demote Stanford who didn’t play but the AP had Clemson climbing all the way to number 4.

From six to eight they’re the same, then they clash again. The AP dropped Georgia to 11 and the Coaches dropped them to 12. The AP also has LSU inside the top to and Florida out, the Coaches have it the opposite way.

Both polls dropped Boise State and Oregon State which were ranked 19 and 25 in each.

Here are the AP Top 25 and the USA Today’s Top 25 side-by-side.
