Buckeyes Up to Second in Polls

The Buckeyes received four first-place votes from the coaches and are behind new-No. 1 Florida State in both polls.
Ohio State is followed in both polls by No. 3 Auburn, who knocked off previous No. 1 Alabama on a last-second touchdown Saturday night.
The Tigers received two first-place votes from the AP, but still trail the Buckeyes by 31 points.
Ohio State did not receive a first-place vote from the AP.
In the Coaches Poll, the one that counts towards the BCS, Ohio
State leads Auburn by 25 points.
That lead has shrunk from 160 points, where it was in last week's poll.
In Sunday's poll, one coach voted the Buckeyes as low as No. 6. In the AP, Ohio State was voted as low as No. 8.
Auburn was not voted lower than No. 4 in either poll.
Alabama fell to No. 4 and Missouri rounds out the top five in both polls.
