The Duke Blue Devils, the only team who have beaten Ohio State this year, has replaced Indiana as the Number-1 team in the AP Top 25 poll.

Michigan and Syracuse each moved up one place to second and third respectively. Following them in the top 10 are Arizona, Louisville, Indiana, Ohio State, Florida, Kansas and Illinois.

The Blue Devils have reached #1 at least once in a record 16 seasons under head coach Mike Krzyzewski, and has played more games as the Number-1 ranked team in his 33 seasons (209) than as an unranked team (141).

Ohio State’s lackluster performance on offense Saturday night on national TV cost them in the weekly rankings.

The Buckeyes have fallen out of the AP college football rankings for the first time in almost seven years. That ends the nation’s longest streak of appearances in the Top 25.

With the Buckeyes streak in the Top 25 over, Alabama has the longest with 53 and Boise State is next at 49.

The Buckeyes lost at Miami on Saturday night, 24-6. They were ranked at #17 before the game and had been in the AP Top 25 for 103 straight weeks since being out on November 20, 2004.

OSU has offensive problems, can’t decide on a quarterback and are missing offensive playmakers, wide receiver DeVier Posey and running back Daniel Herron, who are suspended until the Nebraska game for their part in memorabilia and tattoo scandal.

OSU GAMEDAY: Fickell earns first win as Buckeyes pound Akron, 42-0

Powered by Cincopa WordPress plugin

COLUMBUS, OHIO — The Ohio State Buckeyes, shook off months of NCAA violations talk, Jim Tressel resigning, Terrelle Pryor jumping to the NFL,  seven player suspension and a young starting lineup with only 6 seniors and a first-year head coach to defeat the Akron Zips, 42-0.

With the victory, the Buckeyes gave 38-year-old Luke Fickell his first win as a head coach. Fickell is the sixth former OSU assistant to take over as a head coach.

The game was played in sweltering heat in Ohio Stadium. Temperatures were at 93 degrees with high humidity of 48%. The heat caused the referee, Dennis Lipski to leave the game in the first half and several fans had to be taken to the hospital.

The Buckeyes dominated the Zips in all stat categories: 27-5 in first downs, rushing yards 224-35, sacks 5-0 and Akron could only muster 90 yards of offense.

The top two stars of the game included 25-year-old quarterback Joe Bauserman, who was 12-of-16 passing for 163 yards, 3 touchdowns and no interceptions.

Tight end Jake Stoneburner caught all three of Bauserman’s touchdown passes and in doing so, became the 8th Buckeye to score 3 in a game and the first from a tight end in the football program’s history.

The Buckeyes are 7-1 against Akron.

THURSDAY NIGHT COLLEGE FOOTBALL:Oregon will stay Number 1 with 60-13 annihilation of UCLA

The University of Oregon Ducks had no problem winning a game while ranked Number 1.

While the past two Number 1 teams stumbled, Alabama lost at South Carolina two weeks ago and Ohio State got beat at Wisconsin last Saturday, the Ducks hammered UCLA 60-13 Thursday night in it’s first-ever game as the nation’s Number 1 team.

QB Darron Thomas set career highs in completions (22), attempts (31) and passing yards (308) and three touchdowns.

LaMicheal James, the Number 1 rusher in college football, ran for 123 yards and two scores for the Ducks.

If Oregon had lost, that would’ve been three straight weeks an AP Top 25 team had lost. The last time that happened was in 1960, when Iowa, Minnesota and Missouri all lost.

One last visit: Ohio State 43 Ohio Bobcats 7; Buckeyes 3-0

Number 2 Ohio State forced five turnovers and scored on its first six possessions Saturday afternoon on its way to a 43-7 domination of Ohio University.

Ohio University, making their shortest road trip of the season from Athens,  70 miles to Columbus, Ohio, looked from the beginning that they were ready to play.

After Ohio State took a 3-0 lead, DeVier Posey’s older brother Julian took the Bobcats first  kickoff 99 yards back for a touchdown and everybody in Ohio Stadium remembering the coverage problems in the Marshall and Miami games were probably thinking ‘here we go again.’

But hold on! The kickoff return was called back due to an illegal block so Ohio did not take a 7-3 lead, it was still 3-0 Buckeyes.

The Buckeyes eventually forced the Bobcats to punt.

Then junior quarterback Terrelle Pryor got hot in the passing game. He had a streak of 16 straight pass completions, breaking the school record of 12, set by Jim Karsatos in 1985 against Wisconsin. That mark is the second-most in the Big Ten’s history to Iowa’s Chuck Long who had 22 in 1984.

The Buckeyes ran 26 of their first 31 plays in Ohio Bobcats territory.

Pryor finished the game 22 of 29 for 235 yards with two touchdowns and two “trying to be greedy” in his own words, interceptions. The first two turnovers by Ohio State in three games this season.

Pryor added 35 yards rushing and another touchdown.
