Ohio State is out of The Associated Press college football rankings for the first time in nearly seven years, ending the nation's longest streak of appearances in the Top 25.
Coming off a 24-6 beating at Miami, the Buckeyes dropped out of the rankings from Number 17 in the media poll released yesterday.
Ohio State had been ranked in 103 straight Top 25s since last being left out on November 20th, 2004.
Oklahoma remained Number 1 after a 23-13 victory at Florida State. The loss dropped the Seminoles six spots to 11th.
For the third consecutive week, LSU and Alabama flip-flopped at Numbers 2 and 3. The Tigers moved up to second after winning 19-6 at Mississippi State. The Crimson Tide slipped to third. Boise State stayed at Number 4 and Stanford moved up to fifth.
The Buckeyes play host to the Colorado Buffaloes this Saturday at Ohio Stadium.
