NCAA Football Rankings, Week 10: Ohio State moves up to No. 6 in AP Poll

Kirk Irwin

With the most victories of any team in FBS, the Ohio State Buckeyes have moved up to the No. 6 spot in the AP Poll this week.

Following a series of big losses by highly regarded teams on Saturday, the Ohio St. Buckeyes have moved up to No. 6 in the AP Top 25 Poll this week. With a 9-0 record, the Buckeyes have more victories than any team in FBS, and the possibility of an unbeaten season increases each week.

Last week, Ohio State was ranked No. 9 by the AP voters, but losses by the No. 3 Florida Gators, No. 7 Oregon St. Beavers and the No. 8 Oklahoma Sooners have bumped them all down in the rankings. The Buckeyes beat the Penn St. Nittany Lions 35-23 on Saturday as Braxton Miller accounted for 277 yards and three touchdowns.

The Buckeyes should be able to improve to 10-0 next week with a relatively easy game against the struggling Illinois Fighting Illini, but they finish the season with back-to-back games against the Wisconsin Badgers and Michigan Wolverines in November following an off week.

Ohio State isn't eligible for the Big Ten Conference Championship and any postseason bowl games due to NCAA violations, but the program is still putting up quite a season in Urban Meyer's coaching debut with the school.
