Opening spreads for every Week 2 game featuring AP Top 25 teams originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

A wild Week 1 of the 2022 college football season has resulted in a fresh AP Top 25 poll that's creating plenty of debate.

Florida was one of the biggest winners of the opening weekend. Not only did the Gators upset No. 7 Utah at home, they also jumped from unranked to No. 12 in the Week 2 AP poll. The Gators' schedule doesn't get any easier, though, as they host No. 20 Kentucky in both team's SEC opener Saturday.

Oregon was ranked No. 11 to begin the season and dropped out of the top 25 entirely after being destroyed 49-3 by Georgia on a neutral field in Atlanta. The defending champion Bulldogs leapfrogged Ohio State to become the No. 2 ranked team, even though the Buckeyes defeated No. 5 Notre Dame 21-10 in Week 1.

It was a good opening week overall for the SEC. The sport's best conference has six ranked teams entering Week 2, including three in the top 10.
