Ohio State's plummet in the Associated Press top-25 poll continues.

After losing to Maryland on Tuesday and Indiana on Saturday, the Buckeyes dropped from No. 11 to a season-low ranking of No. 21 in the latest poll released by the AP on Monday afternoon.

Four other teams from the Big Ten are ranked in the top 25: No. 15 Michigan State, No. 17 Maryland, No. 19 Michigan and No. 24 Illinois. Iowa, Indiana, Penn State, Wisconsin, Purdue and Rutgers also received votes. 

Ohio State has now fallen in the rankings three weeks in a row due to a four-game skid that also includes losses to West Virginia and Wisconsin.

Here's a look at how Ohio State's ranking in the poll has fluctuated this season.

  • Jan. 13 - 21st
  • Jan. 6 - 11th
  • Dec. 30 - 5th
  • Dec. 23 - 2nd
  • Dec. 16 - 5th
  • Dec. 9 - 3rd
  • Dec. 2 - 6th
  • Nov. 25 - 10th
  • Nov. 18 - 10th
  • Nov. 11 - 16th
  • Preseason - 18th

The Buckeyes will take on Nebraska at home on Tuesday night with hopes of capturing their first victory of the decade and ending their weeks-long slide. They'll also head on the road to face Penn State on Saturday before the next AP poll is released.
