No surprise after a Week 2 loss that the Buckeyes slid in the rankings.

So, it wasn’t a great weekend for Ohio State football, and the latest AP and Coaches Polls reflect just that. Fortunately, it wasn’t just any team who came into Ohio Stadium and planted their flag, it was the No. 5 ranked Sooners, keeping the Buckeyes in the top 10.

Penn State is now the highest ranked Big Ten team, moving into the No. 5 spot on both polls after a heavy-handed win over Pitt. Ohio State, also now sits behind that team up North in the rankings — which is not great.

There were several other big shake-ups in this weeks polls, below.
