The college football rankings look really different for the AP Top 25 in Week 8 after a slew of upsets, including four to teams in the Top 10.
No one was really looking at the noon slate of games with much intrigue, but the week did not disappoint. The noon slate kicked off a crazy Saturday and things just didn’t slow down.
First, it was Florida falling behind against Vanderbilt before storming back to take the lead over the Commodores. Florida won the game, but not before Dan Mullen and Derek Mason got heated after a targeting call on the Gators. This is the rivalry no one expected.
Ohio State, too, struggled with an inferior foe, but the Buckeyes got Minnesota at home. The Buckeyes found themselves up by just three points in the third quarter, but they scored the game’s final 13 points to win 30-14.
Let’s not even bring up the fact that Tennessee went on the road to beat a reeling Auburn team. The Tigers will be out of next week’s AP Top 25 and it’d be shocking to see them even receive a vote.
Things got even crazier as LSU pulled off the upset of No. 2 Georgia in Baton Rouge and Michigan State went on the road to take down No. 8 Penn State. The Week 8 rankings will get a major shakeup on Sunday afternoon thanks to the craziness that was Week 7.
What will the Week 8 rankings look like?
