September 18, 2016

 

 

The Ohio State Buckeyes moved up to No. 2 in the AP Top 25 football poll released Sunday afternoon. Alabama held the top spot and had 50 first-place votes. Ohio State earned four first-place votes.

 

Rounding out the top 10 were Louisville; Michigan; Clemson, Houston, Stanford; Michigan State; and Washington.

 

Alabama came from 21 points down to win 48-43 at Mississippi on Saturday. The Buckeyes moved up one spot after their emphatic 45-24 victory at Oklahoma.

 

No team made a bigger move than Louisville, which jumped seven spots and received six-first place votes after Lamar Jackson and the Cardinals beat Florida State 63-20. The Seminoles slid 10 spots to No. 13.

 

The Cardinals were No. 3 on Nov. 5, 2006, during coach Bobby Petrino's first stint with Louisville.

 

North Dakota State didn't make the rankings, but received 74 points after upsetting Iowa. See the full rankings below.
