Ohio State jumps, now ahead of Oklahoma

Highlights from the penultimate ballot of the regular season …

*** The top three remained unchanged, with Alabama, Clemson and Notre Dame all holding place after rivalry game victories.

Michigan was removed from the No. 4 spot following the blowout loss to Ohio State. The Buckeyes, meanwhile, jumped three positions, to No. 5.

They remain behind Georgia, in addition to the top three noted above.

*** I slotted the Buckeyes ahead of Oklahoma based on the quality of the win over the Wolverines, which offsets the Sooners’ advantages in other data points.

(That narrow early-season victory over Army now must be considered a quality non-conference win for OU’s resume. The Black Knights are 9-2.)

*** Washington has been a tad higher on my ballot than in the overall AP poll for several weeks, and I expect that situation again today.

The Huskies are slotted 11th, an upward move of three positions, following the Apple Cup win.

Washington State is 13th, a four-spot drop.
