AP, USA Today Top 25 Polls - Week 8

Oklahoma and Oklahoma State sit inside the top 10 and the Baylor Bears win their way into the 20

On Sunday, the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll and the Associated Press Poll released its top 25 rankings following week seven of college football action.

Georgia retains the top spot after handling a top 15 Kentucky team at home 30-13, and Iowa slides from second to No. 11 following a 27-7 loss to unranked Purdue. Cincinnati takes the two spot in the AP while Oklahoma moves up to two in the Coaches and vice versa at three, followed by Alabama and Ohio State to round out the top five. 

Inside the Big 12, previously mentioned Oklahoma Sooners are sitting solidly in the top three. Oklahoma State is eighth in the AP and ninth in the coaches poll, and Baylor moves back into the top 25 at No. 20 in both polls after dismantling BYU.
