AP Top 25 rankings enter Week 9

Clemson escaped Syracuse with a scare, but fellow Top 10 undefeated Ole Miss and UCLA weren’t as lucky on the road Saturday, results guaranteed to shake up the Week 9 AP Top 24 rankings on Sunday. Our plan includes drops for the Rebels and Bruins after losses at LSU and Oregon, who each boosted their resumes and overall stock with notable wins.

Clemson trailed the Orange by 11 points in the second half, but was able to overcome four turnovers to regain first place in the ACC Atlantic. One of the most important night games in Week 8 is undefeated TCU’s homecoming over Kansas State. The Horned Frogs won their fourth straight game against a nationally ranked team for the first time in program history.

In other notable prime-time games, South Carolina posted its fourth straight win over Texas A&M, which could put the GameCox in the new poll on Sunday for the first time since the 2018 season.
