Biggest Jumps From Unranked to Ranked in the AP Poll

NOTE: Only teams ranked 15 or higher are displayed. No preseason polls were included since they often have large jumps from season to season. The default view is 1969-present which represents the modern era of the AP poll (20 teams ranked). Beginning in 1990, 25 teams were ranked.
