Ranking of every college football team after week two: Kentucky and Arkansas jump into the top ten

There is nothing wrong with overcorrections in the college football rankings at the start of the season.

During more than two weeks of football, there were many annoyances and surprising results. Last Saturday, three of the top 10 teams lost to teams outside of the Power 5 conferences. Alabama almost lost Texas And the back player has a reserve. We don’t know what to expect by the end of the year, but we should also be aware that some of the things we’ve been expecting this season haven’t come true.

In these rankings, teams are rewarded for big wins. as a result of, Kentucky And the Arkansas Moved to the top 10 of the athlete 131.

Will they be there by the end of the season? Maybe not. But Kentucky just went to Florida and Paid About Gators In a win 26-16. Since a week, Utah You can not do the same. The wild cats Brought Anthony Richardson The noise train returns to the station, holding it to 14 for 35 and passing with only two interceptions and four yards (including a sack). Kentucky won 10 games last year and finished second in the East Asian Championships. The Wildcats were selected to finish second in the East again this year. Florida got a lot of love after Utah’s win and Tennessee Looks like he’s on his way back under Josh Hubbell, but don’t forget Kentucky. The Wildcats made us remember that Saturday.

Arkansas won Cincinnati In 1 week then deal with it South Carolina 44-30, rushing for nearly 300 yards. The Razorbacks jumped in these rankings early in the season and then slipped at times in recent years. It can always happen again. But quarterback KJ Jefferson He looked elite so far, completing 76.6 percent of his passes for 8.2 yards per attempt, four touchdowns and no one intercepting, as well as two rushing touchdowns. The Razorbacks face a tough schedule ahead. After Missouri this week, they play Texas A&M, Alabama, Mississippi And the BYUBut I’ll give them a shot at most of those now. Perhaps Alabama is more vulnerable than we thought. Maybe not. But there is no reason not to reward teams that win, especially at a time when it feels like almost anyone can beat anyone.

A reminder that teams can go up after a loss or go down after a win. Teams can be quickly jumped because someone else has a more impressive win. It can also be affected when a previous win or loss looks better or worse with more results. Head-to-head confrontation won’t be the only factor as the year goes on, as it simply cannot be, but it is highly emphasized early in the year and serves as a tie-breaker between nearby teams.

Here’s the third week of the athlete 131.

Georgia It was already #1 in these rankings after the first week, and that became even more consistent after Alabama He survived Austin with a 20-19 . win. Along with Kentucky and Arkansas, USC And the Oklahoma Moved to Top 10. Lincoln Riley Offense Caleb Williams USC Seems to be the best case scenario at the momentafter a 41-28 victory in stanford That was 41-14 in the fourth quarter. Defense was average, allowing 21 points per game, but the Trojans have a fast eight. Can this continue?
