AP Top 25: Washington moves to No. 5 after beating Oregon


The first four teams remained unchanged in the Associated Press Top 25, released Sunday, with Georgia continuing its season-long grip on No. 1.

After that? Chaos.

Washington's 36-33 victory over previously undefeated Oregon in an instant classic Saturday sent the Huskies up two spots to No. 5, while the Ducks fell one place to No. 9. Southern California, undefeated after beating Arizona in three overtimes the previous week, dropped from No. 10 to 18 after a shellacking from Notre Dame.

When all was settled Sunday, the Top 10 was reset.

No. 1 Georgia (43 first-place votes) was followed by Michigan (16), Ohio State (1), Florida State (1) and Washington, all undefeated.

Another pair of undefeated teams fell one spot, with idle Oklahoma dropping to No. 6 and Penn State to No. 7, despite a 63-0 rout of UMass on Saturday. Texas rose one place to No. 8, followed by Oregon and North Carolina, which climbed two places to No. 10.

Still on the outside looking in is No. 11 Alabama, followed by Oregon State, Ole Miss, Utah and Notre Dame. The Irish rose six spots to No. 15 after beating USC 48-20 in a prime-time game.

Louisville plummeted seven spots to No. 21 with a 38-21 loss to unranked Pitt.

Four teams moved into the Top 25, including undefeated Air Force, which at No. 22 is ranked for the first time since 2019.

Missouri rejoined the poll at No. 20, as did Tulane at No. 23 and Iowa at No. 24.

Dropping out of the Top 25 were Kansas, Miami (Fla.), Kentucky and Washington State.
