The college football AP Top 25 poll for Week 5 was released Sunday afternoon and there were some significant shakeups after eight ranked teams lost in The Badgers climbed five spots to No. 8, which was tied for the second-largest climb in this week ’ s AP poll . Wisconsin ran all over Michigan and

18. SMU (6-0). The Mustangs were off in Week 7 following their triple-overtime win over Tulsa. Next up is a home game against Temple, which is coming off of a win against a ranked Memphis team. When Arizona State cracked the AP Top 25 last season, the Sun Devils fell out of the poll the next week .

A week after eight Associated Press Top 25 teams lost, six more fell this past weekend – the biggest upset victim No. 6 Wisconsin – so my ballot has a new look again this week.

Wisconsin was the only top 10 team to lose, so the top of the ballot is largely unchanged, but the back half had a lot of movement.

The biggest changes: Wisconsin dropping from No. 6 to No. 14 after losing at Illinois; undefeated Baylor moving up six spots on my ballot to No. 12 after a dominating win at Oklahoma State; and Minnesota, Cincinnati and Appalachian State each moving up four spots to Nos. 17, 18 and 19.

With Boise State’s upset loss at BYU, No. 16 SMU is now my highest ranked team from the Group of 5.

McMurphy’s musings, college football picks for Week 7

SMU is ranked No. 24 in the latest AP Top 25 poll , marking the first time the Mustangs have been ranked since 1986. It’ s not unusual for a couple teams every year to end an AP Top 25 drought but to have two teams end 10-plus-year droughts in the same week is remarkable.
