2016 College Football AP Poll – Week 6

The 2016 college football AP poll for Week 6 of the season is out. Alabama remains in the overall #1 position with 53 first place votes, and Clemson moves up two spots to #3 after defeating then #3 ranked Louisville last week. Washington also made a big move this week (up five spots) after routing #7 Stanford. Teams that dropped from the rankings include: Michigan State, Georgia, TCU, Texas, and San Diego State. 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!
