Sunday saw the release of the week six college football AP Top 25 poll. Included in the poll, for the first time in thirteen years were the undefeated Kansas Jayhawks.
Jayhawks enter at 19
On Saturday, the Kansas Jayhawks were sitting just outside the top 25 of the week five AP poll as they faced off against Iowa State. A last-gasp missed Cyclones field goal saw the Jayhawks emerge victorious and enter this week’s poll as the 19th ranked team in NCAA football.
There was some controversy last week that they were not included in the top 25. But with the win over Iowa State and several losses for top 25 teams, it was a shoo-in this week.
The KU football Twitter account was clearly overjoyed and their excellent tweet about kicking down the door to the top 25 currently has almost 10,000 likes.
