Much like the Coaches Poll there was no movement for USC in the second AP Poll. The Trojans remain at 8 where they were in the preseason. Notre Dame moved up 2 spots from 11 to 9. Arizona (22nd) and UCLA (13th) remain at the same spots as well. Utah moved into the rankings at 24th and Stanford as well as Arizona State dropped out of the rankings. Below you can see the AP and Coaches poll rankings side by side.
|1||Ohio State (61)||Ohio State (63)|
|11||Florida State||Notre Dame|
|16||Texas A&M||Georgia Tech|
