Following a week one blowout of Ball State, Tennessee has officially entered the top 25 of the AP Poll. The Volunteers got their season off to an easy start, disposing of the Cardinals 59-10.

Tennessee was left on the outside looking in to start the season, but thanks to losses from Cincinnati and Oregon, the Volunteers were able to jump in for week two. This sets up a top 25 matchup with Pittsburgh on Saturday afternoon, with the Panthers holding firm at No. 17.

Tennessee narrowly missed out on the top 25 in the Coaches Poll, receiving the 26th most points in the poll.

Florida made the biggest move of the week, jumping all the way up to No. 12 after upsetting then No. 7 Utah last Saturday. The Utes tumbled down to 13th.

Alabama, Georgia, Ohio State, Michigan and Clemson are your new top five.
