Here Are The Updated AP Top 25 College Football Rankings For Week 11

Athens, Georgia, United States: November 26, 2017: Crowd passes under Sanford Stadium Sign on Game Day


The 2023 college football season is officially in full swing, and following a wild and eventful Week 10 the Associated Press is giving us a look at how the competition stacks up as we enter the final stretch of the regular season.

On Sunday, November 5, the Week 11 AP Top 25 poll was officially announced.

This week, the top 9 teams in the country remained unchanged, with defending back-to-back national champion Georgia at the top. Despite the top of the poll remaining the same, there were plenty of shakeups.

Oklahoma State made a splash into the top 15 after upsetting Oklahoma, which dropped 7 spots; Notre Dame crashed 10 spots out of the top 20 after falling to Clemson, and LSU dropped out of the top 15 after a loss to Alabama.

USC, meanwhile, fell out of the top 25 for the first time in the Lincoln Riley era.

Where does your favorite team stand entering the upcoming weekend in the eyes of the Associated Press voters?

The Associated Press rankings carry more weight than polls like the Coaches Poll and FWAA Poll, as they are part of the deciding factor on which teams reach the College Football Playoff. The Coaches Poll, which is not part of the College Football Playoff selection committee’s formula to determine the four teams that will compete for the College Football Playoff National Championship, is voted on by 65 FBS head coaches.

The Associated Press began its college football poll on Oct. 19, 1936, and it is now the longest-running poll of those that award national titles at the end of the season. The preseason poll was started in 1950. A panel of 63 sports writers and broadcasters from around the country votes on the poll weekly.
