After an impressive second match against Ohio State, ESPN changed their power rankings and put Buckeyes in one place. Last week ESPN had Ohio State in 3rd place, but a close match between Clemson and Boston College without Trevor Lawrence left the Tigers dropping a few spots to fourth place. Clemson will try to fight without. there was Lawrence as they went to South Bend and faced ESPN’s No. 3 team, Notre Dame.
Moving up to No. 1 were Mac Jones and Alabama. However, the fact that Buckeyes is second only to two games is definitely a separate story. ESPN has appreciated Ohio State all the season, but OSU̵7;s knocking on the door for No. 1 after just two weeks says a lot for how well the team has played.
With Justin Fields shining absolutely on the field in past matches, the defenders securely fastening the two teams and the attacking weapons appearing earlier this season, all of which make Buckeyes a favorite target for ESPN. As long as this team continues to win and wins convincingly, there’s no reason to think it will drop. By the third week, or ten. No problem, just continue to take care of the business.
After the top four teams, Georgia (5), Cincinnati (6), BYU (7), Indiana (8), Texas A&M (9) and BYU (10) entered the top 10.
