Ohio State stays 4th in Week 5 AP Top 25

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

No further free fall for the Buckeyes as 76-0 does the trick with oft fickle AP Top 25 pollsters.

Those worried that Ohio State failing to score a hundred would result in yet another drop in the AP Top 25 poll can rest easy. The Buckeyes find themselves still fourth in the latest iteration of the poll, behind opening week darlings Clemson, the impressive in the early goings Oregon Ducks, and the standard bearing Alabama Crimson Tide (though the Tide did look mortal at times against former offensive coordinator Jim McElwain and Colorado State last night).

In addition the Buckeyes, the Big Ten is represented by the likes of #17 Northwestern, up a spot in spite of how they looked in an up-and-down showing against the Maine Black Bears, #18 Michigan, down three spots after a second consecutive egg laid against a lesser foe (though a win none the less), and #23 Wisconsin, up a spot from last week after showing no signs after hangover after being hung out to dry by Pac-12 officials a week back in Tempe.

For those amongst us that hold the AP Top 25 as the be all end all (amongst polls anyway), the Buckeyes' big time prime matchup next week is now officially #23 against #4. With the Buckeyes seven point favorites, we'll have to see what Luke Fickell and company have in store for that stout Badger rushing attack.

Here was the AP Top 25 as a whole:
