After hanging 62 points on Michigan, the Ohio State Buckeyes moved up in the latest edition of the AP Poll. With the help of Washington State and LSU losses, the Bucks are now at No. 6. The poll came out shortly after 2 p.m. ET Sunday.

At the top, things stayed the same. Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame are the top three teams in the poll. With Michigan losing, there’s a new occupant in the No. 4 spot: the Georgia Bulldogs.

Rounding out the top five is Oklahoma. The Sooners will be in action against Texas for the Big 12 Championship.

Behind OSU is the defending national champions UCF at No. 7. Michigan appears at No. 8, while Texas and Washington round out the top 10.

Championship weekend has major College Football Playoff implications. Ohio State-Northwestern in the Big Ten title game, Georgia-Alabama in the SEC, and the Big 12 showdown will clear up the playoff picture next Saturday evening.
