AP NCAA Football Top 25
The big story in the AP NCAA Football Top 25 this week comes courtesy of Miami and Notre Dame. The Hurricanes are moving convincingly in an upward trajectory. The Irish ran into the northeast wall of a storm that wreaked havoc and sent them plummeting in the rankings.
Later tonight (Tuesday) we’ll see what the College Football Playoff committee thinks about not only Miami and Notre Dame but also Georgia who fell hard at the hands of Auburn.
With two of the four projected playoff teams taking a nose dive in the Top 25 we’re sure to see some interesting changes this week.
NC State returns to this week’s poll while Virginia Tech’s loss to Georgia Tech drops them from the rankings.
Miami and Clemson are now headed to the ACC Football Championship. The result may find one of the two on the outside looking in when it comes to the College Football Playoffs. Or, will it?

Should Dino Babers’ squad fire up their offense against Bobby Petrino’s defense it may be enough to wear them down and notch a win. The question will be if the ‘Cuse defense can find a way to stop Lamar Jackson.
Over in Winston-Salem, Dave Clawson would love to knock off NC State which would give the ‘Deacs a shot at finishing above .500 in the conference. Both teams delivered convincing wins last week against relentless opponents. Will they have enough left in the tank Saturday?
