After downing Penn State 27-26 in thrilling fashion, the Buckeyes are the No. 3 team in the land, according to the AP Poll.
Like the coaches poll released earlier this afternoon, Ohio State moved up to No. 3, passing Clemson who fell to No. 4. That leaves just No. 1 Alabama and No. 2 Georgia in front of the Buckeyes in the poll.
Four other Big Ten teams cracked the top-25, with Penn State falling just two spots to No. 11 after the narrow loss to Ohio State. Michigan comes in at No. 15 with Wisconsin just behind at No. 16, and Michigan State checks in at No. 20.
The Buckeyes still have games against Michigan and Michigan State on the regular season slate, and a likely matchup with Wisconsin in the Big Ten Championship game if Ohio State were to win the Big Ten east.
