By November 6, 2022 (2:49 pm)Football

After surviving a trip to Evanston, Ill., with a 21-7 victory over Northwestern, Ohio State remained at No. 2 in the most recent AP Poll. The Buckeyes were more fortunate than a trio of their top-10 counterparts, as Tennessee, Clemson and Alabama all walked out of the week with losses.

After taking down then-No. 2 Tennessee, Georgia remained in the top spot while seeing a surge in first-place votes, gaining 31 votes from last week and rising to 62 total votes. Ohio State was the only other team to receive a first-place vote, obtaining just one. No. 3 Michigan, No. 4 TCU and No. 5 Tennessee rounded out the top five, while No. 6 Oregon, No. 7 LSU, No. 8 USC, No. 9 UCLA and No. 10 Alabama completed the top 10.

Outside of Michigan and Ohio State, Penn State checked in at No. 14, after its 45-14 win over Indiana, while Illinois dropped seven spots to No. 21 thanks to its 23-15 loss to Michigan State at home.

Thanks to its win over Alabama, LSU was the highest riser — gaining eight spots to move into the top 10. Several teams saw significant falls, as Clemson and Illinois each dropped seven spots, however, Kansas State saw the largest drop — falling from No. 13 to No. 23 after a 34-27 loss to Texas.
