The Week 2 poll was just released and other than Florida moving out of the top 10 after their shaky Week 0 win over Miami, the top remains almost identical. The Tigers moved up to 10th. The same six schools were included in the AP Top 25 as LSU came in at No. 6 followed by No. 10 Auburn, No. 11 Florida, and No. 12 Texas A&M. The last time only one ranked team lost in a full weekend of games was September 21, 2013.

The top seven of the rankings stayed the same, with Clemson holding the top spot and Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Ohio State, LSU and MI rounding out spots No. 2 through No. 7.

Georgia comes in at No. 3 in the second-rendition of the 2019 USA TODAY Coaches Poll rankings, staying put after a 30-6 win on the road at Vanderbilt. Notre Dame moved up a spot to No. 8 and Texas was ninth. Florida slipped three spots to No. 11. The Crimson Tide is ranked in the top five for the 56th consecutive week, dating to November 8, 2015.

Meanwhile, Iowa State fell from No. 21 to No. 25 after barely beating FCS Northern Iowa at home.

After an uninspiring 14-7 triumph over Rice on Friday night, Army (U-M's opponent on Saturday) remains outside both of the major polls, checking in at No. 31 in the AP and No. 34 in the Coaches.

The Big Ten leads all conferences with seven teams-Ohio State, Michigan, Penn State, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Nebraska.

The Michigan football team will enter Week 2 with the same ranking it did to start the season. The Top 25 had two undefeated weeks in September 2004, going 18-0 the opening weekend of the season and 19-0 a few weeks later.

The Southeastern Conference has four teams in the top 10 and six in the top 12.
