Ohio State jumps in AP Top 25 College Football Poll after win over Rutgers

·2 min read

The Ohio State football team finally looks like the one fans thought they would see this season. A dominating performance against Rutgers along with some top 10 upsets, has vaulted the Buckeyes up the rankings to No. 7 in the AP Top 25 College Football Poll.

Before anyone gets too excited, the win was over one of the perennial cellar dwellers of the Big Ten. However, Rutgers does seem to be a much-improved team from the one fans have grown accustomed to over the years.

Ohio State jumped past Oregon, which is an interesting move considering the Ducks dispatched OSU just a few weeks ago. But alas, we live in a “what have you done for me lately” kind of world.

Michigan has also jumped into the top 10, all the way up to No. 9 after a dominating performance at Wisconsin.

Ohio State welcomes Maryland to the Horseshoe this Saturday as the Terrapins look to bounce back after a beatdown at the hands of Iowa last week.
