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.
