LSU moves to No. 4 in AP poll after beating Texas

There’s a new team in the top five of the AP poll after Week 2 of the college football season.

LSU moved up two spots to No. 4 after a 45-38 win over then No. 9 Texas on Saturday night. While LSU went up two spots the Longhorns only dropped to No. 12 after the home loss.

Oklahoma fell to No. 5 because of LSU’s move up while Ohio State also dropped a spot to No. 6. Both teams had easy wins on Saturday against lesser opponents.

Michigan fell from No. 7 to No. 10 after a double-overtime win over Army at home while Texas A&M dropped from No. 12 to No. 16 after losing on the road at No. 1 Clemson.

Washington fell nine spots to No. 23 after a 20-19 home loss to Cal. The game finished after 4 a.m. ET because of a three-hour thunderstorm delay.

Maryland enters at No. 21 in the poll after soundly beating previously No. 21 Syracuse at home. Virginia also enters the AP poll at No. 25.
