Ohio State is set for its first top-10 matchup of the season this week.

The Buckeyes moved up from No. 10 to No. 6 in the Associated Press top-25 poll to remain in the top 10 for the third week in a row. The ranking sets up a high-profile road test for them when they head to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, to face the seventh-ranked Tar Heels on Wednesday night.

Due to Michigan's wins against North Carolina, Gonzaga and Iowa State in the past week, the Big Ten now has four teams in the rankings. The Wolverines leapt into the top 25 for the first time this season, appearing at No. 4. Maryland, at No. 3, and No. 11 Michigan State also remain remain in the rankings, representing the conference.

Villanova, which the Buckeyes beat earlier this year, is ranked No. 23. Ohio State also topped Louisville in a closed exhibition before the season began. The Cardinals are ranked No. 1.

Ohio State will face North Carolina on the road Wednesday night and Penn State at home Saturday afternoon this week.
