Ohio State is still No. 2 in the latest AP and Coaches Polls

A win over Michigan doesn’t hurt.

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

The Ohio State Buckeyes are coming off of a monumental and exciting victory over the Michigan Wolverines at the ‘Shoe in Columbus. It took two overtimes, but the Bucks prevailed, 30-27. For that, they’re No. 2 in both the AP and Coaches Polls.

Ohio State won’t be playing in the Big Ten Championship game, and that’s fine. The Buckeyes have put themselves in great position for a College Football Playoff bid.

Alabama, of course, remains ahead of the Buckeyes at No. 1, but the Buckeyes are sure riding high after what might have been the most thrilling chapter of The Game.

In the Coaches Poll, Clemson, Washington, and Wisconsin rounded out the top five, with Michigan coming in at No. 6.
