Ohio State remains the No. 10 team in the country in the latest College Football Playoff rankings after an overtime win over Maryland as UCF leapt in front of the Buckeyes in the rankings to the No. 9 spot.
This marks the first time since 2015 that a team outside of a Power Five conference has passes a team in the Power Five after both teams won. The Golden Knights beat previously No. 24 Cincinnati 38 to 13.
The top-six remained the same with Alabama holding the top spot, followed by No. 2 Clemson, No. 3 Notre Dame and No. 4 Michigan. Following behind are No. 5 Georgia and No. 6 Oklahoma.
Four total Big Ten teams cracked the rankings with Northwestern coming in at No. 19 and Penn State at No. 12, joining Ohio State and Michigan in the top-20.
