College football updated polls: AP Top 25, Coaches Poll rankings after Week 12

Sporting News

Another week has passed in the 2019 college football season, and once again the rankings have changed ever so slightly to reflect the outcomes of Saturday's games.

The only change in the top five this week came from Georgia and Alabama; the Bulldogs beat Auburn in Jordan-Hare Stadium while Alabama, despite downing Mississippi State 38-7 in Starkville, lost quarterback Tua Tagovailoa for the year. Those teams switched positions so that Georgia is at No. 4 in the Coaches Poll and AP Top 25, while Alabama is No. 5
