When the No. 5 Oklahoma Sooners beat the No. 2 Ohio State Buckeyes in convincing fashion on Saturday night on the road, many analysts thought they would leap over Penn State and move up to the third spot in the AP poll behind only the Alabama Crimson Tide and Clemson Tigers. However, in a slightly shocking move, the Sooners actually jumped Clemson as well and sit in second place in the AP polls after two weeks of the college football season.

Oklahoma Sooners win big

What moved the Oklahoma Sooners all the way to second place was the dominating manner of their win on the road against the Ohio State Buckeyes.

After going into the half tied 3-3, and then falling behind in the third quarter, 13-10, Oklahoma scored three consecutive touchdowns and ended up winning the game 31-16 over the former second ranked team in the nation.

The Clemson Tigers had a nice win as well over an always tough Auburn Tigers team. However, their win was a 14-6 victory and was nowhere near as dominant as OU's win over a much tougher team. Penn State, who was ranked fourth, dropped one spot despite beating Pittsburgh, 33-14.

The USC Trojans beat up Stanford, 43-34, and moved up two spots with the win. Alabama remained No. 1 in the nation after beating Fresno State, 41-10. Ohio State dropped all the way to eighth after their loss to the Oklahoma Sooners, behind Washington and Michigan.

Other college football movement

The Fighting Irish of Notre Dame dropped out of the AP college football poll after just one week in the polls. They lost to Georgia, at home, 20-19, and fell from the poll. Georgia, which was ranked, only moved up two spots to 13 after the win over The Fighting Irish.

The UCLA Bruins opened the season with a huge win over the Texas A&M Aggies and then destroyed Hawaii in Week 2 to move into the AP college football polls at the 25th spot.

This week, there are two big games coming up when it comes to the AP Top 25. No. 3 Clemson will take on No. 14 Louisville and try to impress voters enough to re-take their No. 2 spot in the polls. Meanwhile, No. 23 Tennessee battles No. 24 Florida, the losing team likely to drop out of the polls.
