Ohio State 4th again in AP Top 25 Poll leading into Week 10

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

The Buckeyes remain 4th after a big win over Penn State.

Though some tunnel visioned Ohio State aficionados may have hoped the Buckeyes' style point rich victory over Penn State might have had more short term polling implications, the Week 10 AP Top 25 poll reveals the Buckeyes to still be stuck in neutral with respect to rising the ranks.

Though the AP Top 25 doesn't formally factor into the BCS standings these days, the poll still awards one of the two recognized national championships in college football. It would take seemingly an act of God for the Bucks to backdoor their way into a split title, but if any of the three teams in front of them (Alabama, Oregon, or #3 Florida State) so much as slip up, it's not inconceivable they get the chance to make their case on the field.

Following a weekend that saw Missouri slip up in double overtime at home against SEC East foe South Carolina and Fresno State need overtime to get past the Buckeyes' Week 2 opponent, San Diego State, the Buckeyes are now joined in the AP Top 25 from the Big Ten by #22 Wisconsin, #23 Michigan, and long overdue new entry, #24 Michigan State. After an impressive victory over Nebraska, Minnesota also received 4 ballot points amongst the "Others receiving votes".

Here is the Week 10 AP Top 25 as a whole:
