College football rankings: AP Top 25 Week 7 projection
The college football rankings — AP Top 25 and Coaches Poll — will be out Sunday afternoon.
The Alabama Crimson Tide jumped the Georgia Bulldogs for the No. 1 spot after last week, and it should remain the same after this week. Alabama held on to beat Texas A&M 24-20 without starting quarterback Bryce Young. Alabama turned the ball over 4 times and missed 2 field goals to let the Aggies hang around and nearly pull off the upset.
Georgia hammered Auburn 42-10 behind a rushing attack that racked up 292 yards. Daijun Edwards accounted for 3 touchdowns in the rivalry win.
Rounding out the top 4 will be Ohio State and Michigan. The most interesting team to keep an eye on this week is Tennessee, who went to Baton Rouge and dominated LSU 40-13. The Volunteers were ranked No. 8; however, they should move up in the rankings. Can they jump in the top 5?
Below is how we think the AP Top 25 will look Sunday afternoon.
