The Buckeyes are climbing the ranks in the world of college basketball.

NCAA Basketball: Ohio State at Northwestern Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

After another stellar week on the Big Ten circuit, one that included road wins against Rutgers, Northwestern and Minnesota (at Madison Square Garden), the Ohio State Buckeyes have taken the college basketball world by storm—and it’s showing in the AP poll.

In the latest edition of the poll, the Buckeyes climbed from No. 22 to No. 13. So far this season, the Scarlet and Gray are 8-0 in conference play, and haven’t suffered a loss since their stumble against North Carolina in the CBS Sports Classic on Dec. 23. Since that loss to UNC, the Buckeyes have rattled off seven straight victories.

Ohio State comes in as the third highest ranked Big Ten team in the latest batch of rankings, with Purdue and Michigan State being the only teams higher at No. 3 and No. 6, respectively. Michigan is the fourth team from the conference included in the poll; the Wolverines come in at No. 25.

Here’s how this week’s poll looks.
