Where is Ohio State in ESPN's Power Rankings after Week 4 – Buckeyes Wire

As Ohio State continues its journey along its 2022 season, we like to check in with some of the national media to see what the perception of what’s going on in Columbus looks like. One of those places we check every week is ESPN and its weekly power rankings of all the teams in the FBS.
The Buckeyes have solidly been in the top two or three teams all year so far in 2022, but each week adds new observations and narratives, sometimes somewhat of a knee-jerky type thing, so we like to see where things stand.
Ohio State started the season No. 2 on ESPN’s power rankings but quickly dropped once everyone saw Georgia play one game. Since then, the Buckeyes have been kind of treading water in the same spot in the rankings despite showing improvement over the last three weeks.
So, where is OSU after the super wedgie it gave to Wisconsin over the last weekend? Did the Buckeyes move up? Here are the latest ESPN power rankings of the top 25 teams as those in Bristol see it.
