After defeating then-No. 4 Michigan 62-39 on Saturday, Ohio State (10-1, 6-1 Big Ten) moved up to No. 6 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings released Tuesday.

With Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame and Georgia filling the top four playoff spots in the latest rankings, Ohio State falls behind Oklahoma at No. 5 after the Sooners defeated then-No. 13 West Virginia 59-56 on Friday.

The Buckeyes are one of four teams in the Big Ten to be represented in the latest College Football Playoff rankings, including No. 7 Michigan, No. 12 Penn State and No. 21 Northwestern.
