AP Top 25 poll: Ohio State up to No. 6 in new college football rankings after beating Michigan
The Buckeyes are still in the College Football Playoff hunt with one more game to go
Ohio State was among the biggest winners in the new AP Top 25 poll, as one would expect, following the Buckeyes' 62-39 victory over Michigan. OSU jumped four spots up to No. 6 in the new rankings after playing their best game of the season. With the College Football Playoff Rankings show set for Tuesday night, the upcoming week will undoubtedly focus on whether Oklahoma or Ohio State could grab the No. 4 spot on Selection Sunday. Ohio State will play No. 21 Northwestern in the Big Ten Championship Game .
Michigan, meanwhile, dropped four spots to No. 8, allowing Georgia to move up to No. 4, which is where we expect it to land in the new CFP Rankings on Tuesday. Oklahoma rounds out the top five. LSU and Washington State, two teams tied at No. 12, both fell out of the top 10 following Week 13 losses. The Cougars fell to Washington in the Apple Cup, while LSU couldn't outlast Texas A&M in a wild seven-overtime game. Washington, one of Week 13's biggest risers, climbed back into the top 10.
