The Ohio State Buckeyes had this Saturday off, but were able to hold on to their No. 2 ranking in the latest AP and Amway Coaches Polls. The Bucks received four first-place votes in the AP Poll.

As far as the rest of the top 10 goes, it went largely unchanged, as Michigan State was the only team to lose, as they fell to Wisconsin at home 30-6. The Badgers moved up to No. 8 in the AP Poll, and the Spartans slipped to No. 16. TCU and Boise State were newcomers to the AP Poll at No. 21 and No. 24 respectively.

The Buckeyes bye week comes before a pretty easy two-week stretch of games against Rutgers and Indiana, both at home in Columbus. They’ll serve as warm up games before the Buckeyes travel to Madison to take on the Wisconsin Badgers, who are riding high after a big win in East Lansing Saturday.

Next week boasts plenty of good matchups across college football, with games between Stanford and Washington, as well as Louisville against Clemson. We’re already ready for Saturday to be here.

Here is the latest Amway Coaches Poll in its entirety, with AP to be added shortly:
