College Football Rankings: Week 8 AP Poll Has LSU On Top, Unsurprisingly

The second of the three major human polls in the college football rankings for Week 8 is out, and the AP Poll has the same team on top. LSU stays in the winner's circle in the Week 8 AP Poll, ahead of the initial BCS rankings for the 2011 season.

The Tigers crushed Tennessee on Saturday, continuing an impressive run through the first half of their schedule that has included wins over Oregon and West Virginia away from Tiger Stadium. They earned 41 of 59 first-place votes. Alabama, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Boise State complete the top five.

Elsewhere, Kansas State claws into the top 15 at No. 12, Michigan and Georgia Tech plummet after suffering their first losses, and Washington and Georgia sneak into the poll in the last five spots.
