Ohio State

Buckeyes climb to No. 7

Alabama's steady rise in the rankings has left the Crimson Tide with a clear view of No. 1 Florida.

Alabama jumped Texas into second place behind top-ranked Florida in the Assoctiated Press top 25 yesterday, giving the Southeastern Conference the Nos. 1 and 2 teams in the country.

Ohio State moved up two spots to No. 7, jumping past No. 8 Cincinnati after the Buckeyes beat previously unbeaten Wisconsin 31-13.

The Crimson Tide moved up one spot after rolling over Mississippi 22-3. Texas, which had been No. 2 all season, slipped a spot after sputtering early in a 38-14 victory against Colorado.

The Gators and Tim Tebow beat LSU 13-3.

Florida received 50 of 60 first-place votes from the media panel, a season low. The Crimson Tide received 10 first-place votes, up from five last week.

Texas for the first time this season did not receive a first-place vote.

No. 4 Virginia Tech, No. 5 Boise State and No. 6 Southern California each moved up one spot.

Miami is No. 9 and LSU dropped six spots to No. 10.
