AP Top 25 college football rankings heading into Week 8 of the 2016 season. Clemson and Ohio State survived scares to remain in contention for the College Football Playoff.


Aside from its win over Louisville, Clemson hasn’t been impressive at all this season. It’s reminiscent of the Jameis Winston-led Florida State team that went undefeated into the first College Football Playoff and underwhelmed while it fell short of a second straight national title.

The Tigers needed overtime to beat NC State, which missed a short field goal at the end of regulation that would’ve secured the upset on the road. Clemson dropped one spot in this week’s AP Top 25 to No. 4 and is on the ropes heading into next week’s ACC showdown with Florida State in Tallahassee.

Ohio State also needed overtime Saturday night, but that was on the road at Wisconsin in a matchup of two top-10 teams. The Buckeyes won, 30-23, and kept hold of the No. 2 ranking.

Top-ranked Alabama remains the team to beat after dispatching of Tennessee, 49-10, in a top-10 matchup that didn’t live up to its billing. Here’s a look at the rest of the AP Top 25 that was released Sunday afternoon.
