On a weekend where four teams in the AP Poll Top 10 took losses, the Ohio State Buckeyes continued to show their dominance, as their 56-14 win against Nebraska helped move them up to the No. 6 spot in the latest AP Poll.

Alabama still holds the No. 1 spot after defeating Arkansas, 41-9, on Saturday night. Penn State, who was on bye this week, is now the new No. 2 ranked team after Clemson stumbled on the road against Syracuse on Friday night. Georgia moved up to No. 3, while TCU and Wisconsin round out the top-5.

The Big Ten conference continues to flex their muscle, as five teams appear in the Top 25. Three of those teams (Penn State, Wisconsin and Ohio State) are in the Top 10—tying the Big 12 for the most.

Auburn suffered the biggest drop in the AP Poll after blowing a 20-point lead on the road to LSU; Auburn went from No. 10 to No. 21.
