<iframe src="" width="640" height="360" style="border:0"></iframe>

AP Top 25 college football rankings heading into Week 6 of the 2016 season. Clemson and Washington join the top five of a poll that features plenty of newcomers.

Three top-10 matchups highlighted another crazy weekend of college football. Two lived up to the hype.

Washington dismantled Stanford, 44-6, on Friday night to rise to the top of the Pac-12 and into the top five of the AP poll. The other two contests were much more competitive. Michigan held off Wisconsin, 14-7, and Clemson bested Louisville, 42-36.

As a result, Michigan stayed put at No. 4 while the Badgers dropped three spots to No. 11. Clemson moved up from No. 5 to No. 3, and Louisville fell from No. 3 to No. 7

None of those games compared to the wild finish in Athens, though. Tennessee’s Hail Mary call was answered in a thrilling win over Georgia, 34-31, to secure a spot in the top 10.

Staying in the SEC, Jim McElwain’s Gators were caught in a defensive battle with Vanderbilt. And even after Florida won in ugly fashion, 13-6, the Gators still moved up five spots to No. 18.

Five newcomers jumped into the poll as well. Here’s a look at the newest edition of the AP Top 25.
