Ohio State Climbs to No. 3 While Stanford Falls to No. 14 in Week Six AP Poll

There weren't many upsets on Saturday, but there were some important changes in the AP Poll.

Saturday was not a day for upsets or major shakeups to the college football landscape.

Instead, two top-10 teams improved their resumes for the College Football Playoff and got a minor bump up in the rankings thanks to wins over their top-10 opponents.

Following a 27-26 win in Happy Valley over Penn State, Ohio State leaped over Clemson, moving from No. 4 to No. 3. The Nittany Lions, on the other hand, dropped two spots to No. 11 with to the loss.

Notre Dame didn't move much, but its 38-17 victory at home against Stanford took the Fighting Irish from No. 8 to No. 6 in the new poll. Meanwhile, the Cardinal went from No. 7 to No. 14 after their first loss of the season.
