Week 2 College Football Poll Released

This morning the associated press released the second set of college football rankings for the season. In a shocking surprise the Texas Longhorns and USC Trojans jumped over Notre Dame to claim the 2nd and 3rd spots respectfully. Ohio State fresh off a beating of Northern Illinois remained number 1 in the poll.

What this now means is when Ohio State and Texas square off on Saturday night, it will be the first regular season meeting between the number 1 and 2 ranked teams since 1996. This game will also be the earliest game ever played between the top two AP poll teams in the history of college football. Maddux Sports will probably be making a college football pick on this game so stay tuned to the website for more winning selections.

There are no new teams entering the weekly rankings, as the only 2 top 25 teams from the opening college football poll to lose where California (35-18 at Tennessee) and Miami (13-10 against Florida State). These losses caused Miami to slip 5 spots to number 17 and California to fall to number 22. Number 11 Tennessee moved up 12 spots courtesy of the dominating opening weekend performance.
