College Football Rankings, Week 14: AP Poll Leaps Oklahoma State Over Stanford

The week 14 AP Poll was released Sunday morning, and while it has no bearing on the BCS rankings, it does help provide an idea of how folks will likely vote in the Harris Poll. The AP Poll used to be part of the BCS but they withdrew and the Harris Poll replaced it.

The latest rankings have the LSU Tigers and Alabam Crimson Tide locked in as the unanimous one and two. LSU got all the first place votes, while Alabama got all the second place votes. Oklahoma State climbed from fifth to third in spite of not playing. Stanford remained in fourth, but they climbed to within five votes of third place. Arkansas' loss dropped them from No. 3 to No. 6.

The NCAA football regular season wraps up next week with a host of conference championship games. Additionally, the Big 12 has a quasi-championship game as Oklahoma State hosts Oklahoma. If Oklahoma State wins they lock up third place, and a big enough win might be enough to get them above Alabama. It's not entirely likely, but crazier things have happened. Stanford meanwhile, will sit and wait to see how the rest of the rankings shake out.

Here are the top ten according to the Week 14 AP Poll:

1. LSU
2. Alabama
3. Oklahoma State
4. Stanford
5. Virginia Tech
6. Arkansas
7. Houston
8. Oregon
9. Boise State
9. USC
