POLL POINTS

Ohio State's 62-3 blowout of No. 9 Nebraska matched the second-most lopsided loss ever by a top-10 team. No. 1 Army blasted No. 6 Penn 61-0 in 1945. A top-ranked Army team also trounced No. 2 Notre Dame 59-0 in 1944.

The 59-point setback was the worst loss ever for a team ranked ninth. Nebraska was on the other end of the previous record, as the second-ranked Cornhuskers whipped No. 9 Washington 55-7 in 1998.

Nebraska fell from No. 9 to No. 21 in this week's poll.
