Week 2 AP Top 25 Poll: Ohio State, LSU Rise In New College Football Rankings

An exciting Week 1 of the 2018 college football season is in the books, and there was plenty of movement in the new AP Top 25 poll for Week 2.

The most notable move is Ohio State jumping Wisconsin for the No. 4 spot. The Buckeyes crushed Oregon State at home, while the Badgers dominated Western Kentucky. Neither victory told us anything about either Big Ten squad, so it’s a little surprising that Ohio State went up one spot.

Washington dropped from No. 6 to No. 9 after a 21-16 loss to Auburn. The Tigers went to No. 7 from No. 9. LSU made the largest leap, vaulting from No. 25 to No. 11 after a convincing 33-17 victory against Miami (FL). The Hurricanes fell all the way from No. 8 to No. 22.
