Projected AP Top 25 College Football Rankings – Week 12


Projected AP Top 25 college football rankings heading into Week 12 of the season. The new AP Poll will look a lot like this when it is released on Sunday.


Good luck on Tuesday night, College Football Playoff selection committee.

Saturday was Upset City for a slew of college football’s top CFP contenders, as Clemson, Michigan and Washington all lost, while Auburn and Texas A&M were forced to cancel their playoff-crashing plans as well.

Meanwhile, one-loss Louisville bounced back from a slow start to defeat Wake Forest and remain in the CFP mix, while Wisconsin and Oklahoma strengthened their cases with victories.

We’ll see how the selection committee slots these teams on Tuesday night, but the AP Top 25 voters will send their ballots in on Sunday.
