BYU is now a top-10 team.

The Cougars are at No. 9 in the post-Week 9 AP Top 25. BYU moved up from No. 11 after a 41-10 win over Western Kentucky. The Cougars jumped Wisconsin after the Badgers didn’t play on Saturday because of a COVID-19 outbreak and got into the top 10 because No. 6 Oklahoma State lost at home to Texas.

The Cowboys fell to No. 14 in the poll. Texas is back in the top 25 now at No. 22.

The top five of the AP poll remained the same with Clemson, Alabama, Ohio State, Notre Dame and Georgia. Cincinnati moved up a spot to No. 6 after a big home win over Memphis.

Texas A&M and Florida follow the Bearcats.

Coastal Carolina is all the way up at No. 15 after a big win at Georgia State. It’s the highest the Chanticleers have ever been ranked. And Liberty, at 6-0 and playing an independent schedule, is now ranked at No. 25.

Penn State is no longer ranked after losing to No. 13 Indiana and No. 3 Ohio State to open the season.
