College football rankings: Week 6, 2020

By Kevin Kelley -

College football rankings for week 6 of the 2020 season have been released. Clemson remains the top-ranked team, while Oklahoma State moved into the top 10.

Clemson (3-0) remains atop both the AP and Coaches polls following their 41-23 home victory over Virginia. The Tigers received 52 of the 62 first-place votes in the AP Poll and 46 of the 62 first-place votes in the Coaches Poll.

Alabama (2-0), Georgia (2-0), Florida (2-0), and Notre Dame (2-0) round out the Top 5 in both polls, although Georgia and Florida share the No. 3 spot in the Coaches Poll.

The six through ten spots in the both polls are also the same even after several teams dropped out: (6) Ohio State, (7) Miami, (8) North Carolina, (9) Penn State, and (10) Oklahoma State.

The Oklahoma State Cowboys (3-0), which blew out Kansas 47-7 on Saturday, jumped seven spots in the AP Poll to No. 10 and nine spots in the Coaches Poll to No. 10.

Oklahoma, which lost to Kansas State last week and Iowa State on Saturday, 37-30, has dropped out of both polls. UCF, Mississippi State, Pitt, and Memphis also dropped out of the AP Poll after losing on Saturday.
