Brett McMurphy’s College Football AP Top 25 Ballot for Week 14

It was a pretty uneventful week involving Top 25 teams on my ballot with the exception of two games: Ohio State holding off Penn State and Arizona State upsetting Oregon.

I dropped Penn State down to 10th after the Nittany Lions’ loss at Ohio State and dropped Oregon to No. 14 after losing at Arizona State.

My top five remained the same: LSU, Ohio State, Clemson, Georgia and Utah. Rounding out my top 10 was Alabama at No. 6, then Oklahoma, Florida, Minnesota and Penn State.

SMU was the only team to fall out of my Top 25 rankings after losing at Navy. Iowa State took the Mustangs’ spot on this week’s ballot.

Next week’s ballot will look much different with five Top 25 matchups: Ohio State at Michigan, Alabama at Auburn, Oklahoma at Oklahoma State, Wisconsin at Minnesota and Memphis at Cincinnati.
