Ohio State continues to impress, yet makes no movement in latest USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll

·1 min read

The Ohio State football team continues to show the nation that it is a much different team than the one that lost to Oregon in Week 2. After five straight impressive outings, the Buckeyes have moved up in the public perception court of opinion, yet couldn’t gain any real ground in the latest USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll, remaining at No. 5.

The offense has looked nearly unstoppable and it played the part again vs. Indiana Saturday night, doing almost anything it wanted en route to a 44-7 halftime lead. OSU then put it on cruise control for a 54-7 blowout victory.

With some more upsets in the top ten, things have shuffled again, however. Georgia, Cincinnati, Alabama, and Oklahoma appear ahead of the Buckeyes still, and Michigan, Michigan State, Oregon, Ole Miss, and Iowa round out the top 10.
