Ohio State stays put in latest USA TODAY Coaches Poll

The latest USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll has been released and Ohio State remains in the No. 2 spot behind No. 1 Georgia and just ahead of No. 3 Tennessee.

The Buckeyes struggled a bit on offense in the first half against Iowa, but its defense was dominant, forcing six turnovers and scoring a defensive touchdown.

The offense found its groove in the second half, and OSU finished with an impressive 54-10 victory.

There are multiple changes up and down the USA TODAY Coaches Poll because of several losses, but we always like to focus on the top 10. It’s unlikely a team comes from below that range to make the College Football Playoff.

Here is the top 10 of the poll followed by the rest.
