Each week, The Daily football beat will vote on who they believe are the top 25 teams in college football. Each beat member will submit an individual ballot, and the results will be aggregated for one comprehensive poll. 

This week, there’s a new number one. Texas was (almost) back against Alabama and it was enough to cause a shakeup in the standings. Elsewhere, Kentucky and Arkansas rose in the ranks while Notre Dame plummeted out of the poll altogether.

  1. Georgia (4)
  2. Alabama
  3. Ohio State
  4. Michigan
