Oregon's consistent style points earned them a move up from the third spot to the second in last week's USA TODAY Coaches Poll Top 25. In this week, despite another more even showing from Ohio State, the Buckeyes find themselves remaining in the third slot once again.
The Buckeyes won't have too many opportunities to impress next week as they play host to FCS side Florida A&M. Anything more than a dominant victory could result in them finding themselves in the fourth slot as they do in the AP Top 25 poll.
Michigan, which had moved up to the 12th spot a week ago, falls to 14th after narrowly avoiding an upset at the hands of Terry Bowden's Akron Zips. Northwestern remained 16th after moving to that spot a week prior. Michigan State enters the poll after their offense under the leadership of former Buckeye OC Jim Bollman came to life for the first time in 2013 Saturday against Youngstown State. In perhaps the most Coaches Poll thing of the week, Wisconsin, who were completely jobbed in the waining moments of their 32-30 road loss to Arizona State, fell from the 18th spot completely out of the poll.
