Top 25 college football rankings

Top 25 college football rankings


Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher wasted no time announcing that quarterback Jameis Winston is back and the Seminoles are back on top of the XN Sports College Football Rankings again this week.

The Seminoles survived Winston's suspension to outlast Clemson, 23-17, in overtime. No. 2 Oregon was tested by Washington State while third-ranked Auburn barely survived a trip to Kansas State.

Mississippi State breaks into the rankings in a big way this week after winning at LSU while East Carolina gets a nod in the rankings after hanging 70 points and over 700 yards of offense on formerly-ranked North Carolina. Duke and Nebraska are both 4-0 and both in the XN Top-25 this week.

Dropped out: Clemson, Virginia Tech, North Carolina, Missouri

Close but not quite: Oklahoma State, Marshall, Utah, Washington, Oregon State, Arizona
