Buckeyes Again Remain No. 1 in Both Polls
By Tony Gerdeman

COLUMBUS — The Buckeyes (8-0, 4-0) remained No. 1 in both polls following their lone bye week of the season.

Ohio State didn't lose any of their 39 first-place votes in the AP Poll, but they did lose one point overall. Despite that one point loss, their lead over Baylor actually increased from 49 points to 57 points.

Alabama, despite having a loss to No. 19 Ole Miss and their only win over a ranked team being No. 25 Texas A&M, remains No. 7 and holds a first-place vote.

Three Big Ten teams are in the Top 10, with OSU at No. 1, Michigan State at No. 6 and Iowa still at No. 10. Michigan dropped a spot from No. 15 to No. 16 after their win at Minnesota. Wisconsin, Northwestern and Penn State all received votes this week.

In the Coaches Poll, Ohio State did lose a first-place vote, but they upped their point total from 1,557 to 1,574, increasing their lead over Baylor from 69 points to 93 points.

Michigan State dropped from No. 5 to No. 6 in the Coaches Poll and Iowa remained at No. 11. Michigan also held at No. 17 for the second week in a row.

The initial College Football Playoff rankings come out this Tuesday.
