Ohio State still 4th in AP Top 25 Poll

After defeating Northwestern in an instant classic, Ohio State finds themselves still 4th in this week's AP Top 25.

Jerry Lai-USA TODAY Sports

Though some cynically expected Ohio State to fall in the aftermath of a classic though most assuredly style point dry game with Northwestern Saturday evening, the Buckeyes remain static in this week's AP Top 25. Alabama, Oregon (the lone two sides with first place votes), and Clemson remain ahead of the Buckeyes.

After the weekend that was, Michigan moved up one from 19 to 18 despite failing to look particularly impressive against Minnesota. This marked the first time in four weeks undefeated UM didn't drop in the AP Poll. The Wildcats, who fell three spots in the coaches poll after a hard fought defeat, fell three in the AP as well. Nebraska, Wisconsin, and Michigan State were amongst those teams that also received votes.

Here is this week's AP Top 25 in its entirety. Missouri's entrance at #25 sets up a Top 25 showdown between the Tigers and #7 Georgia:
