Week Seven College Football Top 25 Rankings

By ,

25. Coastal Carolina Chanticleers (6-0)

24. James Madison Dukes (5-0)

How about James Madison? For the first time in program history, James Madison was ranked in the AP Top 25. They are also ranked in the TWSN Top 25. This is James Madison’s first season at the FBS level and they are dominating their competition. They currently have a top 15 defense in the country and they are getting great quarterback play from Todd Centeio. No team has ever gone 6-0 in their first season at the FBS level and JMU has the chance to accomplish it this coming Saturday. 

23. Syracuse Orange (5-0)

22. Kentucky Wildcats (4-2)

21. Utah Utes (4-2)

20. Cincinnati Bearcats (5-1)

19. Kansas Jayhawks (5-1)

18. Texas Longhorns (4-2)

The Longhorns are in the Top 25 after splattering Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry game this weekend. Quarterback Quinn Ewers returned and put on a show. Running back Bijan Robinson continues to do his thing. It is realistic that if Ewers was never hurt in that Alabama game, Texas would be undefeated and in the top five. 

17. Kansas State Wildcats (5-1)

16. Mississippi State Bulldogs (5-1)

15. Wake Forest Demon Deacons (5-1)

14. NC State Wolfpack (5-1)

13. TCU Horned Frogs (5-0)

TCU handed Kansas their first loss of the season in impressive fashion. This is a team that has somewhat come out of nowhere but has no plans on changing that. This is a sneaky good team that will beat you if you aren’t careful. TCU can make some noise in a very open Big-12 conference this season.

12. Oregon Ducks (5-1)

11. UCLA Bruins (6-0)

UCLA just continues to stack wins. They thoroughly dominated Utah on Saturday to the tune of a 42-32 victory. The scoreboard does not tell the full story in this one. UCLA was by far the better team and could have won by more if it weren’t for a Utah pick-six late in the game. Quarterback Dorian Thompson-Robinson is playing phenomenal football and is a Heisman sleeper. Running back Zach Charbonnet is averaging over seven yards per carry. UCLA is a real threat to win the Pac-12. 

10. Oklahoma State Cowboys (5-0)

9. Penn State Nittany Lions (5-0)

8. Mississippi Rebels (6-0)

7. Tennessee Volunteers (5-0)

Tennessee looked very impressive this weekend, routing Brian Kelly and the LSU Tigers on the road. It was quite the showing for this program and shows just how much they have grown. This is a very talented team and looks to be a force in the SEC.

6. Southern California Trojans (6-0)

Under the new leadership, USC continues to just win. Football in Southern California is back and ready to re-claim their stake in college football. This high flying offense can score against anyone and will be very tough to take down.

5. Michigan Wolverines (6-0)

4. Clemson Tigers (6-0)

3. Georgia Bulldogs (6-0)

2. Alabama Crimson Tide (6-0)

Alabama barely survived another tough game. This is a tough team but one that does have some flaws. For them to win the ultimate prize, they will need to be better on a week to week basis. The Tide are still the class of college football but need to start putting together better performances.

1. Ohio State Buckeyes (6-0)

For the second week in a row, there will be a new number one team in the TWSN Top 25. Regarding Alabama, it is hard to punish them too harshly given the injury to Bryce Young. However, it is hard to ignore the fact that the Ohio State Buckeyes are steamrolling everyone in their path right now. After week one, the Buckeyes are winning games by an average of 37.6 points per game. They are scoring an average of 54.4 points per game since week one. They are an offensive juggernaut.
