The Buckeyes face Illinois this weekend.
The Ohio State Buckeyes are ranked No. Four within the first Faculty Soccer Playoff rankings for the 2020 season.
Within the pandemic shortened season, Ohio State is at present 4-Zero after coming off a 42-35 win over Indiana.
Alabama is ranked No. 1, adopted by Notre Dame, Clemson and Ohio State.
Texas A&M was fifth and Florida was sixth, adopted by unbeaten Cincinnati at seventh, one of the best rating for a non-Energy 5 staff within the seven-year historical past of the choice committee’s rankings.
One other unbeaten staff from outdoors the Energy 5 was not so extremely regarded by the committee. BYU was slotted 14th, behind No. 11 Oklahoma (6-2) and No. 13 Iowa State (6-2) amongst others.
A lot the like this school soccer season in a pandemic, the rankings schedule has been delayed and truncated this 12 months.
The 13-person choice committee often begins rankings groups round Halloween and produces six rankings earlier than the ultimate ones that decide which groups will play within the semifinals and main bowl video games.
That is the primary of 4 rankings main as much as the one ones that basically depend, scheduled to be launched on Dec. 20.
The playoff itself is scheduled to go on as scheduled with the semifinals on Jan. 1 within the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl and the championship recreation Jan. 11 at Arduous Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida.
