The Week 6 edition of the AP Top 25 poll was released Sunday and with it came a shakeup in the rankings following a number of top-tier matchups on Friday and Saturday.
Washington was the big winner this week, moving up five spots to No. 5 after taking down Stanford on Friday night.
North Carolina (No. 17), Oklahoma (No. 20) and Virginia Tech (No. 25) reentered the poll, while Colorado (No. 21) and West Virginia (No. 22) made their debuts. Florida (No. 18) and Boise State (No. 19) were other big movers, joining the Huskies by picking up five spots each in the rankings.
The Tigers hung tight at No. 3 after the win while the Cardinals dropped to No. 8. There were more dramatic shakeups coming further down the latest Coaches Poll. Washington started the weekend of ranked battles with a dominant win over Stanford on Friday that moved the Huskies up to No. 6, right around the clutch-your-pearls, thrill-a-minute Tennessee, which now checks in at No. 9 after its own insane ending against Georgia.
Michigan State, TCU, Georgia, San Diego State and Texas all fell out of the top 25 following losses, opening the door for a ton of new faces in the poll. Colorado jumped 14 spots to No. 23, West Virginia up 10 spots No. 20 and Western Michigan moved up seven spots to No. 25. Row the Boat.
