Week 13 college football rankings: Collecting new top 25s as they come out

College football’s Week 12 didn’t give us any shockers, and it’s not likely to change the rankings picture drastically heading into Rivalry Weekend.

In the only ranked-versus-ranked game of the weekend, Michigan lost at a superior Wisconsin. The Badgers were impressive and might see a slight bounce ahead of their Big Ten Championship Game meeting with Ohio State.

And Oklahoma State lost at home to Kansas State despite a late comeback bid. The only other ranked team to lose was NC State, which saw a chance to beat Wake Forest get knocked into the Deacs’ end zone for a touchback.

This post is a collection of top-25 rankings that come out over the course of Sunday. They’re not the ones that really matter. Those are the Playoff selection committee rankings, which come out on Tuesday night around 7:15 p.m. ET. The AP Poll featured here is a decent barometer for how the committee might see things, and until the Playoff list is actually out, these are what we’ve got.

The rankings featured here:
