Win both of those games and Ohio State will be headed to Indianapolis to play Northwestern in the Big Ten championship game.
The Wildcats are No. 22 this week.
With no major upsets last Saturday, not much change was expected in the rankings.
The top 10 of Alabama, Clemson, Notre Dame, Michigan, Georgia, Oklahoma, LSU, Washington State, West Virginia and Ohio State remained the same.
In all likelihood, the Buckeyes still need help to earn their third CFP bid in five years.
As things stand, they have a win over one ranked team: No. 14 Penn State.
Also of note: Cincinnati checks in at No. 24 this week after improving to 9-1 in year two under head coach Luke Fickell.
Michigan State fell out of the rankings after losing to the Buckeyes.
