Ohio State finished its regular season with a blowout 56-27 victory over Michigan, but as has been the case for the last month, the Buckeyes remained behind LSU to close out the second as the No. 2. LSU crushed Texas A&M, 50-7, to secure its spot heading into an SEC championship bout with No. 4 Georgia.

The Buckeyes are followed in the top 10 by Clemson, Georgia, Utah, Oklahoma, Florida, Baylor, Alabama and Wisconsin.

Ohio State is joined in the rankings by five other Big Ten teams, with upcoming Big Ten championship opponent Wisconsin leading the way behind the Buckeyes, followed by Penn State at No. 12, No. 15 Minnesota, No. 17 Michigan and No. 18 Iowa.

While Cincinnati fell to Memphis, 34-24, the Bearcats remained in the rankings, meaning that Ohio State now has wins over the No. 10, 12, 17 and 21 teams.
