Ohio State moves up in latest USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll

The Ohio State football team did what we all thought they would do when Akron came to town. The Buckeyes dominated in every facet of the game while playing many younger, inexperienced players. Several starters were out nursing injuries in preparation for the Big Ten slate.

The voters liked what they saw moving Ohio State up two spots in the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll from No. 12 to No. 10 in the Week 4 rankings.

It was a wild week in college football with several teams falling and others squeaking by to victories. Texas A&M and Clemson both fell out of the top 10. Oregon jumped Oklahoma after the Sooners struggled with West Virginia.

Here’s a look at the top 10 currently: Alabama (1), Georgia (2), Oregon (3) Oklahoma, (4), Iowa (5), Penn State (6), Notre Dame (7), Cincinnati (8), Florida (9) and Ohio State (10).

Ohio State looks to continue its climb back up the polls as it travels to New Jersey to take on Rutgers next Saturday. Here’s a look at the rest of the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll Top 25.
