Ohio State up to 6th in AP Top 25

New, 4 comments

The Buckeyes' most even game on both sides of the ball perhaps all season has them at a season high spot in the AP Top 25 of 6th.

Patrick Smith

A week after an overtime rally against Purdue saw the Buckeyes fall to 9th in the AP Top 25, a commanding 35-23 victory over Penn State has the Bucks up to a season high place of 6th in the poll.

Oregon somewhat surprisingly stays second with Kansas State and Notre Dame not far behind. Nebraska is the only other Big Ten team represented in the poll.
