Projected AP Top 25 College Football Rankings – Week 11


Projected AP Top 25 college football rankings heading into Week 11 of the season. The new AP Poll should closely resemble this when it is released on Sunday.


Ed Orgeron’s LSU squad gave a valiant effort on Saturday night in Baton Rouge, but the Tide rolled once again.

Nick Saban’s squad held the Tigers to just 125 total yards, and star Tigers running back Leonard Fournette was once again held in check. One game after he had touchdown runs of 78, 76 and 59 yards against Mississippi, Fournette had just 35 yards on 17 carries. It will be tough for any team to beat Alabama if it indeed advances to the College Football Playoff.

Meanwhile, Texas A&M will tumble both in the AP Top 25 and College Football Playoff rankings. Even with a healthy Trevor Knight, it would have been awfully difficult to beat Mississippi State in Starkville the way the Aggies played.

The biggest beneficiary of the Aggies’ loss may have been Louisville, which cruised to victory over Boston College and should move up in the CFP rankings this week.

Let’s take a look at how the new AP Top 25 may look on Sunday.
