Which college football teams remain undefeated after Week 5?

Which college football teams remain undefeated after Week 5's action? Here are the 16 that remain, with a look ahead to Week 6.

Then there were 16. College football Week 5 helped eliminate several undefeated teams due to the inevitability of all-undefeated clashes taking away multiple teams’ perfect starts to the season. However, there were also teams — like Coastal Carolina and Georgia — who scraped by another week as undefeated teams.

Which 16 teams survived another week of college football thrills and spills, how did they make it through another week, and who is their next obstacle in the quest to go through the entire college football season undefeated?

College football teams undefeated after Week 5

Following Week 5, there are 16 college football teams that remain undefeated. As the weeks wind on toward the national championship in January, that number will get steadily whittled down as undefeated teams face off against each other.

Next week sees just one all-undefeated matchup, and it’s one that is crying out to be featured on ESPN’s College Gameday. Both undefeated teams have had an unexpected, almost fairytale rise to college football fame this season.
