College football rankings: Ohio State stays 7 in Coaches Poll, up to 7 in AP Top 25

The Bucks find themselves ranked the same in the Coaches and just one higher after a tough, hard fought win over Minnesota.

In what could prove to forecast Tuesday's latest College Football Playoff selection committee rankings, Ohio State failed to see themselves the beneficiaries Sunday of any Saturday upset losses in one major poll, but got a slight bump in another. The Buckeyes are still ranked No. 7 in this week's Coaches Poll and move up one to No. 7 in the AP Top 25.

Though not a meaningful part of the championship matchup determination in any real sense at this point, the legacy polls still (at least subtly) influence the group think of those who do decide the sport's four team playoff as well as the New Year's Bowl matchups (formerly known as BCS bowls).

Also representing the Big Ten along with Ohio State in the Top 25s this week are Michigan State (No. 10 in AP, No. 9 in Coaches), Wisconsin (No. 14 in AP, No. 15 in Coaches), and Nebraska (No. 21 in AP, No. 19 in Coaches). The Badgers summarily dismissed the Huskers in a game which saw Wisconsin RB Melvin Gordon set the FBS single game rushing record in a performance for the ages.
