There are no real shockers in the latest College Football AP Top 25 poll released on Sunday. Clemson stood tall over as the nation’s top team for a third straight week, followed by three SEC schools in Alabama, Georgia and LSU, who claimed the fourth spot with a 45-38 at No. 9 Texas.

Colorado received votes in the poll for the first time in 2019. An incredible 34-31 upset win over No. 25 Nebraska propelled the Buffs closer to cracking the top 25 for the first time since their 5-0 start in 2018. (Not to jinx anything, but the Buffs are somewhat likely to go 4-0 or 5-0 and claim a top 25 ranking, after Air Force, at Arizona State and Arizona.)
