Shakeup in AP Poll Top 25 following crazy Week 4 in college football

Upsets were abound this weekend across the country...

There was a lot of movement in the Associated Press' college football Top 25 poll after six ranked teams lost this past weekend, including two Top 10 teams.

The top of the poll remained unchanged with No. 1 Georgia, No. 2 Alabama, No. 3 Ohio State, No. 4 Michigan and No. 5 Clemson leading the way.

The shakeup begins after that with No. 6 USC and No. 7 Kentucky each climbing one spot, while No. 8 Tennessee jumped three spots after a 38-33 win over Florida. No. 9 Oklahoma State held serve during its bye week, while No. 10 NC State moved up two spots to enter the Top 10.

The SEC leads all conferences with seven teams ranked in Week 5 of the AP Poll. The ACC has the second-most ranked teams with five, while the Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 each have four representatives.
