Where is Ohio State in the latest ESPN Power Rankings

·6 min read

We’re now three full weeks into the college football season and Ohio State seems to be getting better every week. We like to keep track of what the national media thinks about the job the Buckeyes are doing, and one of those indicators is the ESPN Power Rankings that are released by the “worldwide leader” after every weekend.

Ohio State just put up a bushel of yards and points against in-state MAC opponent Toledo, and one wonders if the offensive onslaught was enough to impress the folks across this great country of ours.

Here is where the Buckeyes and other teams are in the latest ESPN Power Rankings after an interesting Week 3 of the college football season.
