What would a win over Texas mean for Alabama? (1:20)

Well, it only took one week for Deion Sanders to get Colorado into the AP Top 25 college football poll. Fresh off a stunning win over then-No. 17 TCU, the Buffaloes enter the rankings at No. 22.

Florida State convincingly won the week's only top-10 matchup, routing then-No. 5 LSU 45-24. Meanwhile, the preseason top four of Georgia, Michigan, Ohio State and Alabama all won comfortably.

So what does it mean for the new rankings? Here is the full Top 25, along with what's next and a key stat to know for each team.

Stat to know: With the victory, Georgia set a record for most consecutive wins in school history with 18.

Stat to know: Blake Corum's rushing touchdown -- the 32nd of his career -- tied him with Oregon's Bo Nix for the most among active FBS players.

Stat to know: Jalen Milroe became the first Alabama quarterback to ever throw three touchdowns and rush for two more.

Stat to know: Wide receiver Keon Coleman, a Michigan State transfer, had two contested TD catches (three scores overall), and he now has an FBS-best nine contested-catch touchdowns since the start of last season.

Stat to know: Ohio State has now defeated Indiana 29 times in a row, the longest active streak by one current FBS team over another.
