COLUMBUS, Ohio — Starting with Week 7 of the common season, I started balloting Ohio State soccer No. 1 within the Related Press ballot.

My Nos. 2-3-Four votes moved round just a little between then and the top of the common season, however my self belief that the Buckeyes deserved that No. 1 spot didn’t. The equation was once easy — no workforce mixed quantifiably dominant efficiency with power of time table in addition to OSU.

Clemson’s win over the Buckeyes within the Fiesta Bowl confident somebody else would take excessive spot on my poll. The one query was once whether or not OSU may just nonetheless be No. 2, pending the result of the Tigers’ nationwide championship recreation towards LSU.

LSU’s 42-25 victory emphatically spoke back who will have to be No. 1. I feel Ohio State would possibly win a majority of head-to-head conferences with Clemson. However I do know who received the one who in fact came about, in order that’s my No. 2 workforce.

Right here’s the remainder of my poll on this week’s Related Press school soccer ballot. For reference, this is my post-conference championships poll, the ensuing AP Best 25 from early December and everybody’s votes by means of
