Ohio State moves up in the AP Poll. But how far? – Buckeyes Wire

The latest AP Top 25 for week eight was released on Sunday, and after eight weeks Ohio State continues to slowly climb. It started the season at No. 5 moved up, then back, and now back up to No. 3.

The Buckeyes had a dominating performance on the road against Northwestern and it apparently impressed a few voters just enough to leap frog Clemson that fell to No. 4.

Here’s the complete AP Top 25 after week six. Congratulations are in order to Cincinnati who now has a higher ranking than Michigan. That makes two Ohio teams that are now ranked higher than any out of the state up north — in case you are counting.
