The Associated Press poll was announced this afternoon, and the Buckeyes have moved up two spots to #12. OSU is the highest ranked Big Ten school, with Nebraska, who take on the Buckeyes Saturday night in Ohio Stadium, coming in at #21 and Northwestern being ranked for the first time this season at #24. Michigan State fell from the rankings with their loss to the Buckeyes yesterday. Alabama is the unanimous #1 with Oregon, Flordia State, LSU, and Georgia rounding out the top five.
