2016 College Football AP Poll – Week 5

The 2016 college football AP poll for Week 5 of the season is out. The top seven spots of the poll remained fairly static with Georgia making the biggest drop (13 places) in this week’s college poll. Wisconsin was able to leap three spots to #8 after thrashing Michigan State, and the Badgers have a big showdown next week against #4 Michigan. Ole Miss also made a big jump this week after the team’s big win over Georgia and is now ranked #16. Michigan State; however, took a big drop down to #17 after their loss. A&M moves up just one spot to #9 after defeating #17 Arkansas. Teams dropping from the rankings this week were LSU and Oklahoma. Each week that goes by this season sees more teams fall out of contention for one of the four coveted spots in the College Football Playoff, so it definitely poses to be another exciting weekend of college football!
