Ohio State falls in latest Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll

It’s been a bit of a mixed bag for the Ohio State basketball team after returning from its COVID-19 pause. There have been wins over Nebraska, Northwestern, and Penn State, but the Buckeyes have also dropped games they didn’t look very competitive in on the road vs. Wisconsin and Indiana.

Because of the inconsistent play, OSU continues to fall in the two major polls. In the latest release of the Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll, Ohio State dropped to No. 18, down three spots from last week. With the move, the Buckeyes fall further from a top ten of Gonzaga (1), Auburn (2), Arizona (3), Purdue (4), Duke (5), Baylor (6), Kansas (7), Wisconsin (8), UCLA (9), and Houston (10).

Ohio State has games home against IUPUI and Nebraska this upcoming week.
