Following a convincing 30-point win over Illinois on Saturday, Urban Meyer's undefeated Ohio State Buckeyes gained one spot in this week's BlogPoll Top 25.
The Buckeyes racked up 330 yards on the ground alone against the Fighting Illini, and remain one of just six undefeated schools in the country through 10 weeks of play. Aside from a pair of one-loss SEC teams in No. 5 Georgia and No. 6 Florida, the four other other schools ranked ahead of the Buckeyes are also without a loss.
In addition to the Buckeyes, the 8-1 Toledo Rockets also found their way into the rankings this week. The Rockets have won eight straight games after dropping their season opener on the road to Arizona in overtime, and continue to hang their hats on a historic 29-23 victory over a nationally-ranked Cincinnati team back on Oct. 20. Toledo will have another great opportunity to influence voters on Tuesday in a MAC showcase game that will be televised on ESPN2.
