College Football Rankings: 1 To 131 After Week 5

College Football News 2022 college football rankings after Week 5 for all 131 teams with results and who’s up next week.

This might have been another fun/crazy/unpredictable/silly weekend of college football, but for the purposes of the rankings it’s not as bad as after Week 4.

As always, we try to respect the results and put the puzzle together more than dealing with any sort of eye-test, and there are some changes.

Nebraska is a wee bit different now after getting a week off and time to settle in after the coaching changes.

Fresno State losing to UConn is a disaster, but for now the punishment won’t be too harsh with QB Jake Haener out.

Arizona State? It wasn’t bad against USC, but it’s not fair to Eastern Michigan – who has been a dud since the win in Tempe – to give the Sun Devils any credit considering they have yet to win a game over an FBS program.

There are some inconsistencies across the board – Southern Miss and Tulane are a wreck to figure out – but in almost all cases these are as close to fair as possible.

This will change wildly as the season goes on. Nothing is set in stone.
