Ohio State and then everybodey else in AP football poll

Oct 22, 2006 - 9:21 PM NEW YORK (Ticker) -- What was true nine weeks ago has not changed a bit - Ohio State is No. 1.

The Buckeyes once again received all but two first-place votes and are atop the latest Associated Press college football poll released Sunday.

Ohio State (8-0) received 63 first-place votes and 1,623 points from a panel of 65 writers and broadcasters for the third straight week.

Michigan (8-0) remained second with 1,533 points and continue to roll toward a matchup with Ohio State on November 18.

Southern California (6-0) is third with 1,468 points, followed by West Virginia (7-0) and Texas (7-1). For some reason the Mountaineers again received the remaining two first-place votes and 1,458 points. The Longhorns are the highest ranked team with a loss following a close call at Nebraska.

Louisville (7-0) is sixth with Auburn (6-1), Tennessee (5-1), Florida (6-1) and Clemson (7-1) rounding out the top 10. Auburn and Tennessee switched spots while Clemson rose two spots after an impressive win over Georgia Tech.

Notre Dame (6-1) is 11th followed by California (7-1), Arkansas (6-1), LSU (6-2) and Boise State (8-0).

After a 20-10 win at Pittsburgh, Rutgers (7-0) is up three spots to 16th with Wisconsin (7-1), Boston College (6-1), Oklahoma (5-2) and Nebraska (6-2) rounding out the top 20.

Georgia Tech (5-2), Texas A&M (7-1), Missouri (7-1), Wake Forest (6-1) and Oregon (5-2) complete the poll.

There are no new teams in the poll this week.
