Even after a 59-point win against Maryland, Ohio State found itself dropping out of the No. 1 spot in the College Football Playoff rankings down to No. 2.
The drop comes not because of the Buckeyes’ performance, but due to LSU, whose 46-41 win over then-No. 3 Alabama moved the Tigers to the top spot.
