Ohio College Football Rankings after Week #11 by Ohio Sports Time

1. Ohio State – 11-0 (7-0 Big Ten) – A 54-10 thumping of Northwestern is just what the Buckeyes needed to get ready for their annual rivalry game with Michigan. Leading up to Saturday’s 3:30 kickoff the nation may well witness the most hype ever leading up to a college sporting event.

2. Ohio 7-3 (5-1 MAC) – Ohio has enjoyed a much-needed week off to get healthy and prepare for Akron. The Bobcats and Zips face off in Athens on Thursday night where a win for Ohio will put them in the MAC Championship game to play Central Michigan on November 30th. An Ohio win over Akron should secure a bowl bid for Ohio in either the GMAC Bowl, International Bowl or Motor City Bowl.

3. Cincinnati 5-5 (2-3 Big East) – No surprises for UC as they allowed Steve Slaton and Pat White of WVU to run all over them en route to a 42-24 WVU win. Two late Nick Davila TD passes made the final score respectable. The Bearcats host #7 Rutgers on Saturday in hopes that the Scarlet Knights will overlook them after the big win over Louisville.

4. Akron 5-5 (3-3 MAC) – The Zips knocked off Buffalo on Thursday night to draw even at .500 on the season both in MAC play and overall. Thursday night Akron faces Ohio in Athens with a chance to play spoiler and keep their slim MAC East hope alive.

5. Kent State 5-5 (4-2 MAC) – While a 23-0 loss @ #20 Virginia Tech is nothing to be embarrassed of, especially after trailing just 6-0 at the half, but Kent and Akron are headed in opposite directions and that is why the Golden Flashes are below the Zips. Kent will look to snap a 3-game losing streak as they face Eastern Michigan at home on Friday night.

6. Toledo 4-6 (2-4 MAC) – The Rockets finally seem to be heading in the right direction with consecutive wins over Akron and Northern Illinois. With two home games remaining against Ball State (Tuesday) and Bowling Green, Toledo looks to end the season 6-6.

7. Bowling Green 4-6 (3-3 MAC) – All right, in fairness to BG fans we moved the Falcons up to #7 again. Their final two games are against #8 Miami and #6 Toledo as BG will look to finish the season at .500.

8. Miami 1-9 (1-5) – The Wednesday night game with Bowling Green could determine who the #8 spot on this list really belongs to. Miami will look to play spoiler against BG and Ohio in their final two games.
