After beating Tulane on Saturday 49-6, Ohio State remained at No. 4 in the AP Poll for the fourth straight week. The Buckeyes failed to earn a first place vote with No. 1 Alabama earning 60 and No. 3 Clemson earning one.

Ohio State did earn a first place vote in the latest Amway Coaches Poll, but stayed at No. 4 behind the Crimson Tide, the Bulldogs and the Tigers.

No. 4 Ohio State joins Penn State (No. 9), Michigan (No. 14), Wisconsin (No. 15) and Michigan State (No. 21) as one of five teams from the Big Ten conference in the AP Top 25.

The Buckeyes started the season as the No. 5 team in the nation with No. 4 Wisconsin as the only Big Ten team above them.

No. 4 Ohio State will take on No. 9 Penn State on Saturday at Beaver Stadium in University Park at 7:30 p.m.
