Just like the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll where Ohio State fell to No. 12, the Buckeyes dropped one spot to No. 10 in the Associated Press top 25 poll released on Sunday afternoon.
The Buckeyes, which struggled for much of Saturday’s game against Tulsa, were passed by Penn State, which impressed voters by its 28-20 victory at home over No. 23 Auburn.
Ohio State is one of five Big Ten teams in this week’s poll, joining No. 5 Iowa, No. 6 Penn State, No. 18 Wisconsin, No. 19 Michigan and No. 20 Michigan State.
The full Associated Press preseason poll is as follows, with first-place votes in parenthesis:
- Alabama (59)
- Georgia (3)
- Penn State
- Texas A&M
- Ohio State
- Notre Dame
- Ole Miss
- Iowa State
- Coastal Carolina
- Michigan State
- North Carolina
- Fresno State
- Kansas State
