A win against Villanova, which was ranked No. 10, moved Ohio State up six spots in the Associated Press top-25 poll.
Ohio State has now surpassed No. 13, its highest ranking last year which came after opening the 2018-19 season with a 12-1 record. It's also the only school in the country with top-10 basketball and football teams.
The Big Ten opened the year with four ranked teams, but that number has since dwindled to three. No. 3 Michigan State and No. 6 Maryland join the Buckeyes in the top 25. Purdue opened the season in the top 25 but fell out of the rankings last week.
Ohio State has a shot to improve its record to 4-0 when it takes on Stetson on Monday night at the Schottenstein Center. The team won't face another ranked opponent until it heads to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to play the No. 5 Tar Heels on Dec. 4. It'll also face No. 9 Kentucky in Las Vegas on Dec. 21.
