Ohio State's football season didn't end Saturday, but the Buckeyes' walked out of Ohio Stadium after being run over by Baker Mayfield and the Sooner schooner.
Oklahoma's dominant performance -- much like Ohio State's performance in Norman a year ago -- leaves the home team not only with a 31-16 loss but with no margin for error in the chase for a spot in the college football playoff field.
With the win, the Sooners move from third to second on my ballot for this week's Associated Press college football poll.
Alabama holds onto the top spot, with USC, Penn State, Clemson and Washington all moving up one position behind the Sooners in my top six for the week.
Wisconsin moves up two positions as well, while Ohio State is in eighth after what is my fairly typical drop of six spots for a loss. Oklahoma State and Florida State round out my top 10.
Wins by Michigan, which was a little shaky at times midway through its 22-point win over Cincinnati, and Georgia's win over Notre Dame give them a bump this week behind LSU to lead my second 10.
Kansas State and Virginia Tech also move up a couple of spots and Washington State debuts on my ballot this week, replacing Northwestern at 25 following the Wildcats' dismal performance at Duke.
Here is my ballot for this week's AP poll:
4. Penn State
8. Ohio State
9. Oklahoma State
10. Florida State
15. Miami (Fla.)
19. Kansas State
20. Virginia Tech
21. South Florida
25. Washington State
