Ohio State Remains At No. 5 In USA TODAY Sport AFCA Coaches Poll After Win At Indiana

The top seven teams are the same, albeit in a different order than last week.

Despite its blowout win on the road at Indiana, Ohio State remained at No. 5 in the latest USA TODAY Sport AFCA Coaches Poll, which was released on Sunday afternoon.

There was movement in the top five, though, as both unbeaten Cincinnati and one-loss Alabama jumped undefeated Oklahoma, which struggled mightily and needed a fourth-quarter comeback to win on the road at Kansas.

The Buckeyes, meanwhile, continue to lead the Big Ten, which once again placed five teams in this week’s poll, including No. 6 Michigan, No. 7 Michigan State, No. 10 Iowa and No. 17 Penn State. 

The Nittany Lions, who come to Columbus next Saturday (7:30 p.m. on ABC), dropped nine spots following their nine-overtime loss to unranked Illinois.

The full USA TODAY Sport AFCA Coaches Poll is as follows, with first-place votes in parenthesis:

  1. Georgia (64)
  2. Cincinnati
  3. Alabama
  4. Oklahoma
  5. Ohio State
  6. Michigan
  7. Michigan State
  8. Oregon
  9. Ole Miss
  10. Iowa
