AP Top 25 College Football Rankings 2017: Week 4 AP Poll


After another unpredictable weekend slate of adrenaline-fueled college football affairs, the AP Top 25 for this week has seen several pretenders fall out of the rankings while several newcomers have risen to deserved notoriety and will look to make a name for themselves in the coming weeks.

AP Top 25 College Football Rankings 2017: Week 4

This week, we saw the top-10 fluctuate slightly with Clemson switching spots with Oklahoma and Penn State swapping sports with USC most notably. However, the rest of the rankings have proven particularly volatile with Mississippi State going unranked to 17th in the country while UCLA and Stanford were knocked out of the rankings after losing both of their matchups on Saturday.

Ranking Team (1st place votes)
1  Alabama (45)
2  Clemson (15)
3  Oklahoma (1)
4  Penn St.
5  USC
6  Oklahoma St.
7  Washington
8  Michigan

18  Washington St.
19  Louisville
20  Florida
21  USF

After moving up one spot, Clemson is now squarely behind Alabama in the AP Poll rankings, which should make the Crimson Tide slightly nervous that their top spot could be in jeopardy in future polls.
