COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Urban Meyer's 2017 Ohio State football team will officially go down as the No. 5 team in the country. That's where the Buckeyes finished in the final Associated Press college football poll of the season.

Alabama, Georgia, Oklahoma, Clemson and Ohio State made up the top five. Other Big Ten teams in the final poll include Wisconsin (7), Penn State (8), Michigan State (15) and Northwestern (17). (Full Article)
