Michigan State leapfrogs Ohio State in latest AP Top 25 Poll



Ohio State played its toughest competition since falling to Oregon early in the season when it played host to Penn State on Saturday night. While the Buckeyes came away with a nine point victory, it wasn’t the offensive fireworks we’ve come to expect over the past several weeks.

Ultimately, the win over the No. 20 Nittany Lions wasn’t impressive enough. The voters like Michigan State a bit more after Sparty knocked off Michigan in a top 10 matchup. Ohio State dropped a spot to No. 6 while the Spartans jumped three spots to No. 5 leapfrogging the Bucks in the latest AP Top 25 Poll.

After the loss in East Lansing, the Wolverines dropped to No. 9 which is still a respectable ranking for Jim Harbaugh’s club. Especially after allowing a 16 point second-half lead evaporate.

Here’s how the full top 10 sits currently: Georgia (1), Cincinnati (2), Alabama (3), Oklahoma (4), Michigan State (5), Ohio State (6) Oregon (7), Notre Dame (8), Michigan (9) and Wake Forest (10).
