Notre Dame falls from new AP Top 25


The AP college football rankings just hit and the big move was the Fighting Irish of Notre Dame falling out of the Top 25 poll while the Georgia Bulldogs continue to creep back up the rankings after their big win in Week 6.

The big game this weekend saw the Oklahoma Sooners beat Notre Dame, 35-21, which caused the Irish to drop out of the rankings. Thanks to the win, and a big loss by the Oklahoma State Cowboys, the Sooners moved up three spots to 11th in the poll.

Meanwhile, the Georgia Bulldogs beat the LSU Tigers as they continue to make up for their early season loss to the Clemson Tigers. The Bulldogs, who opened the season as a contender for first place, have moved back up to sixth in the polls, while LSU drops to 10th.

The Top 5 remains unchanged, with the Alabama Crimson Tide ranked first, Oregon Ducks in second with five first place votes, followed by Clemson, the Ohio State Buckeyes and the Stanford Cardinal.

Arizona State also moved back into the Top 25 with their big win over USC, while Wisconsin dropped from the Top 25.
