Projected AP Top 25 College Football Rankings – Week 15


Projected AP Top 25 college football rankings after Championship Saturday. The latest AP Poll should look a lot like this when it is released on Sunday.


There won’t be a ton of change this week in the new AP Top 25, as Championship Saturday did not provide too much drama at the top of the rankings, while the rest of the country’s top teams await their postseason destinations.

Alabama destroyed Florida in the SEC title game on Saturday, and Clemson took care of business against Virginia Tech in the ACC championship game later in the day. Expect both the Crimson Tide and Tigers to earn College Football Playoff berths.

Meanwhile, Washington defeated Colorado on Friday night to claim the Pac-12 crown. The big question is whether the Huskies’ non-conference schedule will cost Chris Petersen’s squad a CFP berth, helping Big Ten champ Penn State sneak in. Most college football observers believe Ohio State will get in, making the No. 4 spot a battle between the Huskies and Nittany Lions (and Michigan?).

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