Top-ranked Georgia escaped Missouri’s near upset Saturday night to highlight a loaded college football slate ahead of the Week 6 AP Top 25 rankings release. In our latest projection, the Bulldogs will remain at No. 1, but there will be widespread changes elsewhere after Kentucky’s loss to Ole Miss earlier in the day means a top 10 team has now lost eight times this fall, the most through four weeks since 2009.
The Wildcats will drop in Sunday’s new rankings while Ole Miss, which moved to 5-0 under Lane Kiffin, has a shot at a top-10 ranking. Several new teams are entering the poll for the first time, including Kansas. The Jayhawks held off Iowa State at home as an underdog and is one of three unbeatens left in the Big 12, joining TCU — a big-time winner over Oklahoma — and Oklahoma State.
Michigan’s win at Iowa was its first since 2005 at Kinnick Stadium and broke Jim Harbaugh’s winless streak in Iowa City as a player and coach.
Here’s a look at our projected Week 6 AP Top 25 rankings with several late games pending.
