Ohio State’s lone loss on the season was to Oklahoma, who had the aforementioned loss on Saturday despite being 31-point favorites. Ohio State was No. 2 going into Week 6 — perhaps inexplicably ahead of Clemson, Penn State, and Georgia — and that didn’t change after Saturday’s results. In fact, Ohio State actually closed their lead on Alabama in the FPI, and are now only 1.3 points back of the No. 1 spot.
Last week, Ohio State was 3.6 points behind Alabama, but it looks like the Crimson Tide’s eight-point win at Texas A&M had a much larger effect on ESPN’s FPI rankings that Oklahoma dropping to Iowa State did.
Oklahoma fell from No. 3 to No. 6 in the FPI after the loss. They still rank ahead of undefeateds Georgia, Wiscosnin, and TCU.
