Stop me if you’ve heard this before: Georgia remains on top of my Associated Press Top 25 ballot.
While the majority of the Top 10 either struggled or lost on Saturday, the Bulldogs had no such issues.
Alabama remains at No. 2 on my ballot, while Michigan State (previously No. 3) and Wake Forest (previously No. 9) dropped out of my Top 10 after losing on Saturday.
Rounding out my Top 10 after Georgia and Alabama is No. 3 Oklahoma, No. 4 Cincinnati, No. 5 Oregon, No. 6 Ohio State, No. 7 Notre Dame, No. 8 Oklahoma State, No. 9 Michigan and No. 10 Texas A&M.
Action Network senior writer Collin Wilson’s updated college football betting power ratings continue to agree with my top two teams: Georgia and Alabama.
Here’s my updated AP ballot compared with Wilson’s updated power ratings entering Week 11 of the college football season.
Brett McMurphy’s AP Top 25 Ballot Entering Week 11

Seven of my top 10 teams also are rated by Collin in his top 10. The only teams in my top 10 that are rated outside Collin’s top 10 are:
|Team||My Rating||Collin’s Rating|
|Notre Dame||No. 7||Tied-11|
|Oklahoma State||No. 8||Tied-15|
There are only two teams that Collin and I both ranked between Nos. 11 and 20: Ole Miss and Arkansas.
There is little agreement for the remaining teams I ranked between Nos. 11 and 20. The biggest differences were BYU, UTSA and Houston, which I respectively ranked Nos. 15-17. Collin rated the three schools much lower: BYU (48), UTSA (62) and Houston (50).
Collin and I agreed on three teams between Nos. 21 and 25 — NC State, Coastal Carolina and Baylor. Collin also had seven teams rated in his top 25 that I did not include on my Top 25 ballot. Collin’s rankings were:
- Penn State (tied-7th)
- Utah (tied-7th)
- Iowa State (tied-11th)
- Pitt (tied-15th)
- Arizona State (18th)
- North Carolina (tied-22nd)
- Tennessee (tied-22nd)
