Week 2 of the college football season is in the books and there were plenty of shocking results and finishes that will change the landscape going forward. Let's predict the new top 10 in the college football rankings going forward following Saturday's chaos.

College football rankings


1.) Alabama (2-0)

The Crimson Tide had a “cupcake” matchup against Mercer following their Week 1 demolition of Miami (Fl). Alabama had no issues going into halftime with a 31-0 lead.

Bryce Young played well and expectedly didn't play the whole contest as Alabama had things well under control in the second half.

No movement up top, Nick Saban's squad stays No. 1 in the college football rankings when they come out and get set for a big matchup against Florida next week.

2.) Georgia (2-0)

Perhaps the only thing to make Bulldogs fans uneasy going into their Week 2 matchup was that quarterback JT Daniels was ruled out with an oblique injury. Kirby Smart opted to roll with Stetson Bennett, who started plenty of games last year and he destroyed the UAB defense on Saturday.

The Georgia all-time record for passing touchdowns in a game is five. Bennett threw for that many in the first half on Saturday as Georgia would go on to win 56-7. They stay put at No. 2.

3.) Oklahoma (2-0)

Ohio State losing at home to Oregon opens the door here for Oklahoma. Sure, the Sooners struggled against Tulane in their first game and played Western Carolina this past Saturday but nobody is doubting the legitimacy of Lincoln Riley's team…for now.

Spencer Rattler dazzled against far inferior opponent in Western Carolina as Oklahoma rolled to a 76-0 win. Cement in the Sooners at No. 3 in the new college football playoff rankings.

4.) Oregon (2-0)

Is the Pac 12 back? Is Oregon for real?

Those are the questions that will swirl this week after Oregon's eye-popping 35-28 victory at Ohio State.

The Ducks did whatever they wanted in the ground game and this was no fluke win. Oregon went up 7-0, led 14-7 at the break, 21-7 in the second half and never looked back.

It was one thing for the Ducks to win this game. To never have trailed and do what they wanted paving holes up front on offense was another that caught a lot of people by surprise.

The Ducks go from No. 12 to No. 4 after the best true road win of the season was collected by them on Saturday.

5.) Iowa (2-0)

The Hawkeyes jump up from No. 10 after their thumping of then No. 9 Iowa State in Ames on Saturday.

Iowa has dominated this series in the last few years and kept that trend rolling with a 27-17 victory over the Cyclones.

There are still plenty of question around how good and efficient quarterback Spencer Petras can be but for now, this team is getting carried by a stout defensive unit and a stellar running back in Tyler Goodson. It's been good enough to blow out Indiana and handle Iowa State so far on the year.

Iowa jumps to No. 5 because they are the only team in the country with two, top 25 wins to start the season.

6.) Texas A&M (2-0)

Yes the Aggies are 2-0 but they looked super flat against Kent State in Week 1 and barely escaped against Colorado in Week 2.

Texas A&M were 17-point favorites against the Buffaloes and trailed for 57 minutes before scoring a touchdown late to win 10-7.

The lack of conviction in their win tied with starting quarterback Haynes King leaving the game against Colorado and not returning could cause some panic in Aggie-land. Still, Texas A&M sits in a good spot in the college football rankings at No. 6 in our predictions.

7.) Clemson (1-1)

Sometimes in college football it's all about when you lose and while Clemson was the talking point for many following their Week 1 defeat at the hands of Georgia, they have passed that torch onto Ohio State now.

D.J. Uiagalelei didn't dazzle against South Carolina State on Saturday but he didn't really need to as the Tigers handled business in their 49-3 victory. The blowout was expected as is Clemson hovering in the top 10 in the college football rankings. We pencil the Tigers in at No. 7.

8.) Cincinnati (2-0)

The Bearcats move down one spot in our rankings via the huge wins from Oregon and Iowa on Saturday. They only move down one because of Ohio State sliding out of the picture for now.

Cincinnati was tied with Murray State at halftime 7-7 on Saturday before they flipped the switch to outscore the Racers 35-0 in the second half.

Desmond Ridder started to shine and Cincinnati showed yet again that they will constantly be the non-Power 5 team to lurk in the shadows this year.

Back-to-back tests against Indiana and Notre Dame on the road will tell us what we need to know about the Bearcats.

9.) Notre Dame (2-0)

Speaking of those Fighting Irish, it's hard to get a pulse on this team so far this year.

They escaped Tallahassee with an overtime win over Florida State in Week 1. That same Florida State team lost to Jacksonville State in Week 2 on perhaps the most insane finish of the weekend in college football.

The Irish then had to score a late touchdown with a minute left to hold off Toledo in South Bend.

Still, it's a 2-0 start for the Irish and that can't be discredited but keep an eye out on Notre Dame in the coming weeks to see how legitimate the playoff race may be for them.

10.) Penn State (2-0)

Yes, Ohio State is outside the top 10 in our college football rankings.

The Nittany Lions scooped up a huge road win against Wisconsin to start the year 1-0 and followed it up with a 44-13 route of Ball State to get to 2-0.

Penn State moves up from No. 11 to No. 10 in our rankings and solidifies themselves as a top 10 team.

An appetizing matchup against Auburn awaits Penn State in Week 3.
