The Ohio State Buckeyes smashed the UNLV Rebels on Saturday, 54-21. However, that win didn’t help Urban Meyer’s program at all in regards to the AP Poll. The Buckeyes fell back one spot to No. 11, as TCU and Georgia leaped into the Top 10 after big wins over the weekend.

Below is how the new AP Top 25 Poll looks heading into Week 5.
