The Ohio State Buckeyes stayed put at No. 2 in Sunday’s latest Associated Press Top 25 Poll. OSU remained among the undefeated teams in the country following a comeback 30-23 victory over the now-No. 10 Wisconsin Badgers.
Alabama claims the top spot by even a greater margin after dispatching Tennessee 49-10 on the road. The Crimson Tide earned 60 out of 61 first-place votes.
The other team to earn the only other first place vote was Michigan who moved up to No. 3 after its bye week. The previous third-ranked team, the Clemson Tigers, held on in overtime at home to unranked North Carolina State.
The Tigers dropped to No. 4 and Washington was ranked No. 5 for the second straight week.
Nebraska jumped to No. 8 after the losses by Wisconsin and Tennessee. The Cornhuskers defeated Indiana 27-22 on the road.
This is the second week in a row that four Big Ten teams are ranked in the top 10.
