Outside of the top 25, N.C. State jumped forward two spots to No. 37 (14 votes) with its 35-0 win over Eastern Kentucky.
Miami and Duke received their first votes of the year as the Hurricanes ranked No. 41 with three votes, while the Blue Devils ranked No. 45 with one vote.
Virginia Tech, who received no votes after falling to No. 1 Ohio State in the season opener, reemerged in the rankings at the No. 43 spot with two votes.
For the third week in a row the Buckeyes hold the No. 1 spot and are trailed by Alabama and TCU, respectively.
