In this week's AP college football poll, Ohio State drops from No. 2 to 3 after beating Buffalo by fewer than betting lines would have suggested.
Part of Ohio State's drop of one spot can be attributed to Doug Lesmerises of the Plain Dealer. One of 60 AP voters, Lesmerises pushed Ohio State down to No. 9 on his ballot.
In the USA Today coaches poll, the Buckeyes remain No. 2, one spot ahead of Oregon. The Buckeyes had three first-place votes in the coaches poll.
