The more Ohio State wins, the more they lose in the rankings.
Coming off their 42-7 pummeling of San Diego State, the Buckeyes dropped from No. 3 to No. 4 in the college football rankings, behind Alabama, Oregon and Clemson. At the start of the season Ohio State was No. 2.
They’re on the road Saturday to take on Cal, which has managed to stumble its way to a 1-1 record, and the college betting lines show the Buckeyes heavy favorites.
We’ve got ourselves a night game this week: 7 p.m., on Fox.
