Ohio State loses all first-place votes in latest USA TODAY Coaches Poll

The latest USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll is out and YOUR Ohio State Buckeyes lost all of the first-place votes they had picked up, but they remained at No. 2, just behind Georgia, which made a statement at home against Tennessee. Michigan moves into the No. 3 spot and is closing the gap with OSU, picking up two first-place votes.

There were wholesale changes in the poll because three of the top six teams fell this weekend. Not only did the Vols lose to the Bulldogs, but Clemson was on the receiving end of a super wedgie administered by Notre Dame. Alabama lost another close one, this time to LSU in Baton Rouge.

There also was a shakeup at the bottom end of the top 25 because of teams losing last weekend. Bottom line: the USA TODAY Coaches Poll looks a lot different after Week 10 than it did heading into all the shenanigans over the weekend.

We’ll get into the top 10, but first here is the rest of the poll from No. 25 to No. 11.
