Though both Ohio teams won their contests this past weekend, it was the Ohio University Bobcats who improved their ranking in the lastest Associated Press coaches’ poll, slotting in at No. 23. Ohio U, now ranked higher than the freefalling West Virginia Mountaineers, will take their 7-0 record to Oxford, Ohio when they face the Miami Redhawks this coming Saturday.
The Buckeyes (9-0) squeaked past the Purdue Boilermakers but lost ground to both Oregon State (6-0) and Oklahoma (5-1). The Scarlet and Grey will head to Happy Valley this Saturday to face the Penn State Nittany Lions (5-2).
