The Ohio State Buckeyes have moved to No. 8 in the most recent version of the SB Nation BlogPoll, up four spots from last week's ranking. The Buckeyes' 63-38 dismantling of Nebraska helped impress BlogPoll voters, and with four of the previous top 10 ranked teams losing over the weekend, it gave Ohio St. the chance to climb the rankings.

The ballot breakdown shows that OSU received vote ranging from No. 2 to No. 17. Ohio State is now the only Big Ten team ranked in the top 25 with both Northwestern and Nebraska falling out of the rankings following losses last weekend.

The Ohio Bobcats continued their undefeated season with a win over the Buffalo Bulls last weekend and come in at No. 23 in this week's BlogPoll. Ohio hosts Akron this week and Ohio State travels to Indiana. Alabama and Oregon remain the top two teams in the rankings this week.
