After Ohio State reached its highest spot in the AP Top 25 since the start of the 2017 season at No. 2, the Buckeyes plummeted out of the top 10 entirely as a result of Saturday’s 49-20 loss at Purdue. OSU (7-1, 4-1 Big Ten) enters its Oct. 27 off week at No. 11 in Sunday’s AP poll and appears at No. 9 in the Amway Coaches Poll.

The Boilermakers (4-3, 3-1) received 17 votes to sit outside the AP Top 25 at 33rd. They joined Michigan State, with 16 votes at 34th, as the other Big Ten program among the teams just beyond the poll. No. 5 Michigan, No. 17 Penn State, No. 18 Iowa and No. 20 Wisconsin join OSU as the conference’s five representatives.

Below is the entire AP Top 25.
