There are many winners and losers from the AP Top 25 in the latest college football rankings.
The AP Top 25 revealed so much in the latest batch of college football rankings ahead of Week 3.
Week 2 of the 2022 college football season was bananas! A handful of highly ranked teams suffered massive upset losses that nobody saw coming. Notre Dame still has not won a game under Marcus Freeman. Texas A&M got more than it could handle vs. Appalachian State. Baylor dropped a tough road game in Provo to BYU. Did I mention that Alabama almost lost to Texas?
These are the biggest winners and losers from the latest AP Top 25 Poll.
College football rankings: Biggest winners from AP Top 25 Poll, Week 3
The Georgia Bulldogs are the top Dawgs in college football through two weeks
They may have only played Samford, but the Georgia Bulldogs move up one more spot this week to No. 1. The defending national champions started the year out No. 3, but Ohio State struggling with Notre Dame last week and Alabama nearly falling to Texas has the Dawgs on top. Given how dominant this team has been over the last two years, they must be the No. 1 team going forward.
Kentucky might be in for another 10-win season under Mark Stoops this year
The Kentucky Wildcats have cracked the top 10 after beating division rival Florida in The Swamp. It would have been absolutely incredible if the Gators beat Utah and Kentucky back-to-back right out of the gate with a new head coach. However, we need to give Mark Stoops his due once again. His team has every reason to believe it can win 10 games again this year, maybe get to the NY6?
The Arkansas Razorbacks have the absolute perfect head coach in Sam Pittman
While it remains to be seen if Arkansas is the second best team in the SEC West this year, there is no debate about this one important factor. Sam Pittman is the absolutely perfect head coach for them. Not only does he feel 100 percent Arkansas, but he has his Hogs at 2-0 and in the top 10 with impressive early-season wins vs. Group of Five beast Cincinnati and SEC foe South Carolina.
BYU can win the Group of Five as an independent in its last opportunity to do so
Although being independent may hurt them in the end, the highest ranked Group of Five team in the country is BYU. The Cougars beat the reigning Big 12 champion Baylor Bears in Provo on Saturday night. While it remains to be seen if Baylor will repeat in its conference, the Cougars just got one past its future conference foe on a big stage. Kalani Sitake is one helluva head coach, guys!
And with every winner from the AP Top 25 Poll, there are losers to be had, so get ready for that!
