Ohio State was placed at 4th in the first week of the Harris Poll Top 25, and hasn't wavered over the past two weeks, as the Buckeyes continue to trail Alabama, Oregon, and Florida State. The Harris Poll Top 25 makes up 1/3 of the BCS standings, as does the USA TODAY Coaches Poll.
The top five teams remain unchanged, while Missouri drops to 9th after falling to South Carolina in double overtime. Stanford moves to 6th, and Miami stays at 7th for this week, despite narrowly escaping Wake Forest at home. Clemson is at 8th, while Oklahoma rounds out the top 10.
Auburn finally jumped Texas A&M (there was a dispute last week, as many pundits argued that the Tigers should jump A&M after beating the Aggies) at 11th, just outside of the top ten. Joining Ohio State in representing the Big Ten is Michigan at 21st, Michigan State at 23rd, and Wisconsin at 24th. Nebraska was dropped out of the top 25 after losing to Minnesota, and Virginia Tech dropped out after Duke pulled off the upset.
Here is the Week 10 (third week overall) Harris Poll Top 25 as a whole:
