AP Top 25: A&M Up To 6, UH Out Of Top 10

Houston’s 46-40 loss to Navy cost the Cougars a spot in the Associated Press Top 25 which was released today instead of Sunday because the Georgia – South Carolina game was postponed to Sunday afternoon as a result of Hurricane Matthew. UH fell from sixth to 13th in the latest poll. The loss to the Midshipmen most likely also cost the Coogs a chance to make the College Football Playoff, and perhaps a shot at a “New Year’s Six” bowl game. (ESPN.com is predicting Houston will play in the Miami Beach Bowl.)

As for the Naval Academy, its first win over a Top 10 team in Annapolis in 30 years propelled the Midshipmen into the Top 25. Navy is currently ranked 25th Alabama, after beating Arkansas 49-30 remains the top-ranked team in college football. The Crimson Tide will travel to Knoxville, TN to play Tennessee this weekend. The Vols fell to ninth after falling in double-overtime to Texas A&M 45-38. The Aggies moved up to sixth in the poll and will take next weekend off before facing Alabama in Tuscaloosa next weekend.

The Top 5 remained the same. Following Alabama, Ohio State is ranked second, Clemson third, Michigan fourth, and Washington fifth.

Auburn and Western Michigan joined Navy moving into the Top 25, Stanford, North Carolina and Colorado fell from the rankings.
