Ohio State drops to 3rd in AP and Coaches Poll

A week into the regular season, and the AP Poll has a shake up at the top, as 2 teams drop. Despite beating a top 5 team by 11 poiints, Ohio State gets jumped by Georgia, who defeated 11th ranked Oregon in Atlanta decidedly. 

The Buckeyes still received 2 first place votes (Adam Grosbard and Bob Asmussen). They received 20 second place votes, 40 3rd place votes, and 1 5th place vote by Stephen Hargis. For full rankings break down, click here.

The Buckeyes also ranked No. 3 in the Coaches Poll which was released last week, and similar to the AP Poll, are behind Alabama, and the defending national champions Georgia. 

Ohio State leads the Big Ten in the AP Poll, ahead of Michigan (4), Michigan State (14) and Wisconsin (19), all of which Ohio State will play this year.
