College football polls: Updated AP Top 25, Coaches Poll rankings for conference championship week

Rivalry Week in the NCAA did not disappoint, and the results led to a shake-up in the rankings ahead of the conference championship games. 

The Big House hosted the contest with the highest stakes for the college football playoff, as No. 2 Ohio State and No. 3 Michigan battled it out in the 2023 version of The Game. The Wolverines downed the Buckeyes for the third year in a row, solidifying their spot in the Big Ten title game, while sending their rivals’ odds of making it to the CFP plummeting. 

Meanwhile, No. 1 Georgia remained undefeated by holding off Georgia Tech, while No. 4 Washington survived a scare against Washington State. Even without star QB Jordan Travis, No. 5 Florida State kept its perfect record intact with a victory over Florida in Gainesville.
