Ohio State jumped to No. 3 in the Associated Press Top 25 poll after opening the season with a 52-17 thumping of Nebraska on Saturday.

No. 1 Clemson (6-0) and No. 2 Alabama (5-0) held their spots and received 52 and 10 first-place votes, respectively.

The Buckeyes (1-0) climbed two places, knocking both No. 4 Notre Dame (5-0) and No. 5 Georgia (3-1) down a rung.

The rest of the top 10 released on Sunday saw Oklahoma State (4-0) holding steady at No. 6, followed by Cincinnati (3-0), Texas AM (3-1), Wisconsin (1-0) and Florida (2-1).

Ohio State wasn't the only Big Ten team to make a big move. The Badgers and No. 13 Michigan (1-0) each climbed five spots. No. 17 Indiana (1-0) joined the poll and achieved its highest ranking since 1993 after beating then-No. 8 Penn State (0-1), which tumbled to 18th.

No. 24 Oklahoma (3-2) rejoined the rankings and No. 25 Boise State (1-0) extended its streak to 19 straight seasons with at least one poll appearance.

Dropping out this week were Virginia Tech and North Carolina State of the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Big Ten's Minnesota, which fell 49-24 to the Wolverines.
