Ohio State moves up in College Football Playoff rankings

Ohio State moved up four spots in the College Football Rankings this week after blowing out Michigan. 

The Buckeyes were 10th a week ago, last among one-loss teams and behind undefeated UCF and two-loss LSU. 

Ohio State is sixth this week behind No. 1 Alabama, No. 2 Clemson, No. 3 Notre Dame, No. 4 Georgia and No. 5 Oklahoma. 

The Buckeyes and Sooners (among other teams) have another chance to move into the top four this weekend as Alabama and Georgia will play in the SEC championship game, Ohio State will play No. 21 Northwestern in the Big Ten championship and Oklahoma will play No. 14 Texas in the Big 12 championship game.
