Cincinnati climbed one spot to No. 4 on my Associated Press Top 25 ballot this week, while Georgia and Alabama remained Nos. 1 and 2.
Ohio State is up to No. 3, followed by Cincinnati and Notre Dame. Oklahoma State and Michigan each moved up two spots to Nos. 6 and No. 7 respectively.
Losses by Oregon, Michigan State and Wake Forest caused those three schools to plummet in my rankings.
Here’s my updated AP ballot compared with Action Network senior writer Collin Wilson’s current power ratings entering Week 13 of the college football season.
Brett McMurphy’s AP Top 25 Ballot Entering Week 13

It took 13 weeks, but for the first time this season, Collin has seven of my top 10 teams on my AP ballot rated among his top-10 teams.
Of the seven teams, only No. 1 Georgia and No. 10 Oklahoma are ranked in the same spot. The biggest discrepancy among my top 10 teams from Collin’s ratings is No. 9 Baylor, which Collin rates down at No. 16.
Only one team on my AP ballot between Nos. 11 and 20 — No. 13 Oregon — is also among Collin’s 11-20 teams. Collin has the Ducks rated No. 13.
The rest of my rankings look nothing like Collin’s. The biggest differences are BYU (No. 11 on my ballot, No. 49 rating by Collin) and UTSA (No. 17 on my ballot, No. 59 rating by Collin).
San Diego State
The final five teams on my ballot are not anywhere near in the same ballpark as Collin’s ratings.
San Diego State, Wake Forest and Louisiana, which I ranked Nos. 22-24, did not rank higher than No. 30, according to Collin.
Also, seven teams were not on my Top 25 ballot that Collin rated in his Top 25: No. 19 Tennessee, No. 20 Clemson, No. 21 Penn State, No. 22 NC State, No. 23 UCLA, No. 24 Mississippi State and No. 25 North Carolina.
