For some reason the Ohio State Buckeyes, even after shutting out Toledo, 38-0, dropped two spots in the latest Associated Press Poll.

The Buckeyes remain No. 11 in the USA Today Coaches' Poll.

Lose 18-15, drop four. Win 38-0, drop two. I guess it goes to show you that being a member of the media requires minimal education.
