NCAA Football Rankings, Week 11: Ohio State moves up in AP poll

Ohio State moved to No. 5 in the Associated Press poll, and Michigan's victory against the Minnesota Golden Gophers has the Wolverines just outside the top-25.


The LSU Tigers' fall from fifth place to ninth place headlined the changes in the Week 1 Associated Press poll. Les Miles' team fell to No. 1 Alabama at home for the Tigers' second loss of the year.

The Crimson Tide claimed all 60 first-place votes this week and retained their top spot. Oregon, Kansas State and Notre Dame followed Alabama, in that order.

The Tigers' loss allowed the Ohio State Buckeyes, who are 10-0 on the year after a victory against Illinois, to move into fifth place in the poll. Ohio State leads the Big Ten and is the only top-25 team from the conference.

The Minnesota Golden Gophers are again not ranked in the poll. A 4-0 start to the year has turned sour with a 1-4 mark in Big Ten Conference play. This week, Minnesota fell 35-13 to the Michigan Wolverines, who themselves received 53 points and now stand three spots out of the top-25 standings.
