AP Top 25 poll: Ohio State jumps Clemson, Notre Dame passes OU in college football rankings

Ohio State and Notre Dame emerged from Week 5 as two of college football‘s biggest winners. The Buckeyes went on the road to come from behind (twice) against Penn State, 27-26. The Fighting Irish had a convincing 38-17 victory over Stanford. As such, those two are also two big winners in the latest Associated Press Top 25. 

Ohio State jumped Clemson to claim the No. 3 spot behind Alabama and Georgia. The Buckeyes also have one first-place vote. Notre Dame, meanwhile, bumped Oklahoma to sit just outside the top five. Like the Coaches Poll, West Virginia makes a top-10 appearance, while Penn State falls just outside the top 10. 

Another big riser is Kentucky, which is up four spots to No. 13 after handling South Carolina 24-10. The team with the biggest drop is Stanford, which falls seven spots to No. 14. Five new teams — Colorado, Florida, NC State, Virginia Tech and Oklahoma State — appear or reappear in the top 25.
