Ohio State remains No. 2 in this week’s AP and Coaches Polls

New week, same ranking.

NCAA Football: Rutgers at Ohio State Greg Bartram-USA TODAY Sports

The Ohio State Buckeyes continued to roll this past Saturday after their bye week, crushing Rutgers in Columbus 58-0. The Buckeyes accumulated 669 yards, and while they didn’t score defensively, still pitched a shutout. J.T. Barrett also broke the school record for career passing touchdowns, previously held by Bobby Hoying.

This was enough to keep the Buckeyes ahead of Clemson at No. 2 in both polls, who had a big win over Louisville and Lamar Jackson in Death Valley. Alabama remained No. 1, with Clemson coming in at No. 3, Michigan at No. 4, and Washington up to No. 5.

Next week will feature a matchup between the No. 8 and No. 9 teams in Texas A&M and Tennessee. Tom Herman’s Houston Cougars held firm at No. 6. As far as the rest of the Big Ten goes, Wisconsin dropped 3 places to No. 11, with Nebraska coming in this week at No. 12.

The Buckeyes will welcome the Indiana Hoosiers next week, who just came off of a big win against Michigan State in Bloomington. Last year’s game was very close, hopefully that’s not the case this time around as the Bucks look to keep on rolling.
