Ohio State remains No. 5 in SB Nation’s FanPulse Poll

The LGHL poll differs a bit from the national one in regards to OSU’s next opponent.

Following the first full week of 2019 college football action, the people of SB Nation have spoken, and — much like the AP and Coaches Poll — things are pretty much the same as they were before Week 1. The Clemson Tigers remain as the top team as voted on by fans, followed by Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, and your Ohio State Buckeyes.

Clemson came in as the top team from every single SB Nation site’s fandom except for... <drum roll please> South Carolina and North Carolina, who had the Tigers as second and third respectively.

Check out the national Top 25 (the LGHL poll is below):

With only one week of games in the books, it makes sense that the Land-Grant Holy Land poll would look similarly to the national one, but the ever-intelligent Buckeye fans do differ from the national consensus a bit, generally where it involves Big Ten teams.

The LGHL poll has the Penn State Nittany Lions a spot higher than in the national poll and Wisconsin up two spots. The LGHL poll has Michigan State and Iowa in the same positions as nationally, but unlike the main SB Nation Top 25, who has the Nebraska Cornhuskers at No. 25, the Land-Grant poll replaces the Huskers (OSU’s Week 5 opponent) with the Buckeye’s next opponent, the Cincinnati Bearcats. Mad respect for Coach Fick.
