College football rankings: Ohio State still No. 7 in Coaches Poll, AP Top 25s

The Bucks stay the same after a mostly lackluster performance against Indiana.

Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

With no teams ahead of them losing, it's not surprising to see the Ohio State Buckeyes remaining static in the traditional polls we've relied on for so many years. The interesting part will come Tuesday night, particularly given how long the Bucks unexpectedly struggled with the plucky Indiana Hoosiers.

The top teams in this week's first major poll, the Amway Coaches Poll, aren't a ton different from Week 13. The AP looks about the same as well. With Florida State surviving yet again with a late win over Boston College, Alabama functionally idle playing an FCS team, and Oregon trumping Colorado, the top teams in the College Football Playoff are represented once again, albeit in a slightly different order. Alabama jumped FSU in the Coaches after the 'Noles had yet another close call. The 'Noles remain No. 1 in the AP.

Still joining the Bucks in the first poll of the day are Michigan State (No. 8 Coaches, No. 10 AP) and Wisconsin (No. 14 in both major polls), who were victorious over Iowa in a game closer than expected, while Nebraska's second straight loss sees them out of the Top 25. Minnesota continues to find themselves in the mix in the College Football Playoff Top 25, but hadn't seen the same respect in the traditional polls until this week. They find themselves No. 22 in the Coaches Poll and AP Top 25 alike.
