For the second straight week, Ohio State is moving up in the AP Poll, thanks to its massive 48-7 win in primetime over Nebraska in Lincoln. After checking in at five in last week’s poll, the Buckeyes jumped over LSU in the week five rendition, as the Tigers sat out the week on a bye.

The Buckeyes now trail Alabama (up from second to first), Clemson (down one spot) and Georgia, and are followed in the top ten by the Tigers, Oklahoma, Auburn, Wisconsin, Notre Dame and Florida. The only change outside of the top four was at nine and ten, where Notre Dame and Florida flipped places.

Ohio State is joined by four other Big Ten teams: Wisconsin at eighth, Penn State at 12, Iowa at 14, and Michigan, up one spot to 19th after its blowout win over Rutgers.

The top team that currently sits right outside the poll is Ohio State’s next opponent, Michigan State, with 147 votes received, which puts them right next to the No. 25 Texas A&M Aggies. Minnesota is also receiving votes, though the undefeated Golden Gophers only picked up 15 this week.
