After a narrow 20-13 victory over Northern Illinois in the 'Shoe last week, Ohio State remained at No. 1 in the latest AP and Amway Coaches Poll. In the AP Poll, the Buckeyes received 42 first place votes, with 7 going to Michigan State, and 11 going to Ole Miss.
Other changes we saw in the AP Poll include Ole Miss jumping to 3, tied with TCU, after their impressive win In Tuscaloosa over Alabama, who comes in at No. 12 in this week's AP Poll. LSU jumped to No. 8 after stomping out Auburn, who dropped out of the rankings. Notre Dame moved up from No. 8 to No. 6 after an impressive showing against Georgia Tech.
Big Ten teams Michigan State, Northwestern, and Wisconsin all moved up in the rankings at No. 2, 17, and 22 respectively. BYU dropped out of the top 25 after their loss to UCLA, and Stanford appears this week at No. 21.
Still atop the Coaches Poll, the Buckeyes only lost first place votes to Michigan State, who received 3 out of 64 possible votes. Ole Miss jumped from No. 11 to No. 5 after defeating Alabama, who fell to No. 12. USC dropped to No. 18 after losing at home to Stanford.
LSU moved up to No. 9 after Leonard Fournette lead the way on the ground against Auburn, who dropped down the rankings after two straight poor performances but is inexplicably somehow still ranked at number 25. UCLA found themselves at No. 11 after slowing down the Hail Mary magic of BYU, who dropped out of the poll.
Stanford was the only newcomer to the poll at No. 24.
