Ohio State remains 3rd in USA TODAY Coaches Top 25

New, comment

After an initial report that the Buckeyes were tied with Clemson this week, an amended Top 25 has the Buckeyes still in third.

After outlasting and rallying against Northwestern to the tune of a 40-30 victory, Ohio State finds themselves still third in this week's coaches poll. Though it's not falling to fourth, many predicted the Buckeyes may lose some votes for a victory that while against a Top 20 caliber side, featured the Buckeyes struggling to control the game the majority of the evening. USA TODAY initially reported the Buckeyes being tied with Clemson, but amended their results.

Joining the Buckeyes in Top 25 are Michigan, who are up one spot from 17th to 16th in this week's edition of the poll. Northwestern, the unfortunate team that had to be on the losing end of a classic like the one they and the Buckeyes played yesterday evening, fall three spots after their first loss of 2013. NU's arguably biggest threat in the Leaders Division race, Nebraska, is up one spot from 25th to 24th this week.

Below is these weeks USA TODAY Coaches Poll Top 25 in its entirety. First place votes are in parentheses to the right of the teams who received them's names.
